CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

The Philadelphia Orchestra

Yannick Nézet-Séguin by Jan Regan Photography, Hélène Grimaud by Mat Hennek / DG
Take a vividly orchestrated musical journey through the Alps and experience a majestic sunrise, a violent storm, awe-inspiring views from the peaks, and more. With nearly 130 instruments on stage—including wind and thunder machines—Strauss’s vivid portrait of nature’s beauty has visceral power. While Strauss scales the heights, Bartók’s concerto looks inward with gentle folk melodies, chorale-like themes, and episodes of bird song, as well as moments of dazzling bravura.
