CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Orchestra of St. Luke’s

Bernard Labadie by Dario Acosta, Ying Fang by Arthur Moeller, Paul Lewis by Josep Molina
Haydn’s craftsmanship, melodic mastery, and sharp wit inspired generations of composers after him, including Mozart and Beethoven. Haydn’s “Farewell” Symphony was the composer’s way of telling his boss, Prince Nikolaus Esterházy, that the court musicians wanted to return to their families after an unexpectedly long period of employment from which they were not permitted leave—after three bustling movements, it winds down to silence to deliver the message. Haydn’s “children” have their say as well: Beethoven’s concerto bubbles over with wit and high spirits, while Mozart’s melodically splendid concert aria weaves voice and obbligato violin into a pseudo operatic duet.

Orchestra of St. Luke's is also performing October 5, October 25, and April 18.

Bernard Labadie is also performing October 25 and May 7.
