CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Cancelled: Orchestra of St. Luke’s

Thursday, December 3, 2020 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
URL Copied
Bernard Labadie by Dario Acosta, Isabelle Faust by Felix Broede
High spirits and sweet melodies are Mendelssohn’s trademarks. His Violin Concerto opens with passionate exchanges between soloist and orchestra, followed by a gentle second movement that sings tenderly and a finale that is an effervescent romp with exuberant violin runs. The incidental music to Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream captures the play’s poetry—excerpts of which you will hear in David Hyde Pierce’s narration—and rustic humor. Listen for the orchestrated donkey brays in the Overture, a quicksilver movement depicting the fairy kingdom, and the famous Wedding March.
