CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Jaime Laredo by Christian Steiner, Peter Serkin by Regina Touhey Serkin
A beloved Bach concerto, a folksy and reflective Bartók work, and Brahms’s noble symphony are showcased by the stellar young musicians of the New York String Orchestra. Bach’s “Double” Concerto features virtuosity and poignant beauty—especially the sublime central movement—while Bartók’s concerto glows with gentle folk melodies energized by bravura flourishes. With his Symphony No. 1, Brahms assumed the mantle of the great German symphonist in a grandly scaled work that ascends to heroic heights.
