Carnegie Hall, 881 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10019
Celebrate 120 years of Carnegie Hall with a set of concerts by the Mariinsky Orchestra - conducted by the formidable Valery Gergiev...
Carnegie Hall burst onto the international stage when Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky—the world's most illustrious and popular musician—stepped out to conduct at its first Opening Night in 1891. His vivid, powerful music and flowing melodies had already swept the world, leading the way for a striking new dynasty of composers that included Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich.
In our Opening Night Gala and throughout October, we appropriately focus on Tchaikovsky himself. Hear Valery Gergiev and his great Mariinsky Orchestra bring their special sound to performances of the composer's symphonies, one through six, as well as music by his remarkable successors.
Opening night: 6 October 2011
Closing night: 11 October 2011
