    Carnegie Hall Announces Program Update for Philadelphia Orchestra Performance on January 17, 2013 

    Carnegie Hall today announced a program update for the performance by The Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin on Thursday, January 17 at 8:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. Violinist Leonidas Kavakos will perform Karol Szymanowski’s Violin Concerto No. 2, Op. 61 in place of Osvaldo Golijov’s Violin Concerto, originally scheduled to receive its New York premiere at this performance.

    “Regardless of how they fare later in life, some works have a pleasant birth, while others a difficult one,” said Osvaldo Golijov. “The violin concerto belongs to the second type, and I can only hope that when it is ready to see the world, it will be worthy of the artistry of Leonidas Kavakos, as well as that of the other artists and presenters who entrusted me with its creation.”

    The other works on this program—Ravel’s La valse and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5—remain unchanged.

    This concert will be aired on WQXR 105.9 FM in New York and stations nationwide as part of the Carnegie Hall Live broadcast and digital series, produced by WQXR and Carnegie Hall in collaboration with American Public Media and hosted by WQXR’s Jeff Spurgeon and American Public Media’s Fred Child. Concerts in the series are available for live streaming on wqxr.org and carnegiehall.org/wqxr. During every live broadcast, WQXR, Carnegie Hall, and digital partner NPR Music will host live web chats, including Twitter commentary by the broadcast team, from backstage and in the control room, connecting national and international fans to the music and to each other.
