The Met Orchestra at Carnegie Hall
For three unforgettable evenings in May and June, the “glorious” (New Yorker) Met Orchestra leaves the opera house to take the stage at Carnegie Hall, showcasing a diverse range of composers, periods, and musical styles. Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the Met’s Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer Music Director, leads two of the performances, with Valery Gergiev conducting the third. The concerts also feature outstanding guest soloists, with appearances by mezzo-sopranos Isabel Leonard and Elīna Garanča, as well as pianist Daniil Trifonov.
May 18 | 8 PM
Valery Gergiev brings dramatic flair to Schubert's Ninth Symphony and Schumann’s Piano Concerto, featuring Daniil Trifonov—“one of the most spectacularly virtuosic pianists of the day” (New York Times).
