Carnegie Hall Presents

Sphinx Virtuosi

Thursday, October 13, 2022 7 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Sphinx Virtuosi by Kevin Kennedy
Sphinx Virtuosi is the most prestigious group of musicians to represent the magnificently impactful Sphinx Organization. The 2021 Carnegie Hall performance by these “top-notch string players” received an extended standing ovation for music-making described as “splendid,” “vibrant,” and “arresting” (The New York Times). In their anticipated return, the ensemble performs the New York premieres of exciting new works by acclaimed composers Valerie Coleman and Jessie Montgomery—both co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall—as well as works by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Carlos Simon, and Beethoven. Such a varied program is characteristic of Sphinx Virtuosi’s insightful, ongoing exploration of the classical canon’s evolution.
