Carnegie Hall’s new season puts BBC Proms in shadeNews
The 2022-23 season, just announced, has the Philadelphia Orchestra practically in residence over several visits, challenging a reinvigorated NY Phil in its restored hall. Should be a good contest.
Mitsuko Uchida will be official resident artist, with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.
The City of Birmingham Orchestra and the LA Phil will make their first Carnegie visits in 30 years, with Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla and Gustavo Dudamel; the Helsinki Philharmonic is back for the first time in half a century.
The Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic orchestras, Cleveland and the Ensemble Intercontemporain will perform their ritual roles. Maurizio Pollini will mark his 80th birthday. The Emersn Quartet will reflect on the life on Andrei Sakharov. The Lviv Philharmonic will represent suffering Ukraine.
New recital pairings will include mezzo-soprano Anne-Sofie von Otter with fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout; soprano Renée Fleming with pianist Evgeny Kissin; and violinist Joshua Bell with pianist Daniil Trifonov.
Being serious about music does not hurt.
