Carnegie Hall Announces 2022/23 Concert Season
The venue’s upcoming season will involve over 150 performances by world-leading artists and ensembles, beginning on September 29, 2022
Carnegie Hall’s 2022/23 concert season will include a selection of multi-genre concerts as well as multiple education and social impact programs created by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.
The Opening Night Gala concert will be led by The Philadelphia Orchestra and their music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, performing works by Ravel, Dvorák, and Gabriela Lena Frank. They will also be joined by pianist Daniil Trifonov, who will perform Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1.
Showcasing the New York premiere of her new project, “Fragments,” cellist Alisa Weilerstein will be performing Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1, alongside new works co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall.
Additionally, the new season includes recitals by mezzo-soprano Anne-Sofie von Otter with pianist Kristian Bezuidenhout; soprano Renée Fleming with pianist Evgeny Kissin; and violinist Joshua Bell with Trifonov.
In December 2022, Itzhak Perlman will be joined by pianists Emanuel Ax and Jean-Yves Thibaudet, plus the Juilliard String Quartet, in a concert of Leclair, Mozart, and Chausson.
In February 2023, Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Mutter Virtuosi will give the New York premiere of Unsuk Chin’s Gran Cadenza for Two Violins and Midori will perform the solo violin sonatas and partitas by J. S. Bach.
Further into the season, violinists Gidon Kremer and Maxim Vengerov; cellist Steven Isserlis; pianists Evgeny Kissin and Lera Auerbach; and the Emerson String Quartet will unite in May 2023, to commemorate the centenary of Andrei Sakharov — the Nobel Peace Prize winner for championing universal human rights, disarmament, and peace.
Also in celebration, pianist Yuja Wang, Nézet-Séguin, and The Philadelphia Orchestra will mark the 150th birthday of Sergei Rachmaninoff, by performing all four of his piano concertos — the first time they will be performed together in full at Carnegie Hall — plus his Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.
The Sphinx Virtuosi chamber orchestra will also perform, marking the 25th anniversary of the Sphinx Organization and Carnegie Hall’s traditional December concerts will feature the New York String Orchestra and conductor Jaime Laredo.
Additionally, the Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine and conductor Theodore Kuchar will debut in Carnegie Hall with a Brahms and Dvorák program. Ukrainian-American pianist Stanislav Khristenko will join the orchestra in Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1.
Early music highlights include performances by The English Concert, Concerto Köln, L’Arpeggiata, countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, harpsichordist William Christie, plus a recital with violinist Théotime Langlois de Swarte, among others.
Jazz performances will include pianist and composer Helen Sung with her ensemble and the Harlem Quartet, plus appearances by GRAMMY Award-winning drummer and composer Terri Lyne Carrington with her sextet, Social Science.
“Since Carnegie Hall reopened from its extended closure seven months ago, it has been inspiring to see how much it has meant to artists, audiences, trustees, supporters, and staff to come together and enjoy live performances by amazing artists from all around the world,” said Clive Gillinson, Carnegie Hall’s Executive and Artistic Director.
“Overall, we have created a season filled with superb programs by the leading artists of our time, spanning early music to works written today, building on Carnegie Hall’s aspiration to be a home for the best of every genre of music—a place where people of all ages and areas of life are inspired to come and explore,” Gillinson added.
Single tickets for the 2022/23 concerts are available to Carnegie Hall subscribers on August 15, 2022, at 11 AM, and to the general public on August 22 at 11 AM.
