Carnegie Hall today announced that the performance by Ensemble Connect conducted by Sir Simon Rattle on Sunday, October 16 at 3:00 p.m. EST in Zankel Hall, will be webcast free of charge to a worldwide audience, thanks to a continued partnership with medici.tv. The concert program consists of Schubert's Winterreise - A Composed Interpretation for Tenor and Small Orchestra by Hans Zender with tenor Mark Padmore. Following the live webcast, free replay of this concert will be available to online audiences on medici.tv for another 90 days, playable worldwide on all internet-enabled devices, including smart phones, tablets, Chromecast, computers, and smart TVs.
The partnership between Carnegie Hall and medici.tv, making live webcasts of select Carnegie Hall concerts available for the first time, began in fall 2014, showcasing performances by some of the world's most celebrated artists. These webcasts-which, most recently included Carnegie Hall's 2016-2017 Opening Night performance by Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela last Thursday-have been enthusiastically received, reaching over 3 million views over the past two seasons with audience members originating from more than 180 countries and territories around the world.
Esteemed conductor Sir Simon Rattle leads Ensemble Connect (formerly known as Ensemble ACJW) in this first performance of the fellowship's tenth anniversary season. Sir Simon, who is currently embarking this fall on the second year of his two-year Perspectives series at Carnegie Hall, conducts the ensemble in this work by Hans Zender, a fascinating reimagining of Schubert's song cycle Winterreise. The performance features tenor Mark Padmore, a frequent collaborator of Sir Simon's who is known for the intensity and sensitivity he brings to Schubert lieder.
