Filharmonie Brno Comes to Carnegie Hall Next Month

Philip Glass' Symphony No. 12 comes to Carnegie Hall this February for its New York premiere performance. Featuring five-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Angélique Kidjo and organ virtuoso Christian Schmitt, it concludes Glass' trilogy of David Bowie-inspired symphonies.

Widely considered to be one of the most innovative and adventurous conductors/programmers in the classical music world, Dennis Russell Davies leads the famed Czech symphony orchestra Filharmonie Brno in a program that pairs Philip Glass' twelfth symphony with two works by quintessential Czech composers: Thunderbolt P-47, the charming scherzo by Martinů, and together with Christian Schmitt, Janáček's Taras Bulba, in which "Russell Davies beautifully integrate[s] the agitated rhythms of battle, stark tragedy, a wild mazurka and a triumphant apotheosis with the sonic splendour of full orchestra, plus organ and chiming bells" (Ilkley Gazette, England, Oct. 2022).

Date: Wednesday, February 8, 2023
Time: 8:00 PM
Location: Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall
