Carnegie Hall Live

Join us this Sunday, May 31 at 4 pm as WRTI brings you the first in a series of broadcasts recorded live in concert at Carnegie Hall during the 2014/2015 season.

Re-live the opening night gala concert by the Berlin Philharmonic, led by Simon Rattle. Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter – a longtime collaborator with the Philharmonic – is the soloist in the lush Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor. The program opens with Rachmaninoff's Symphonic Dances and concludes with the final moments of Stravinsky's The Firebird.

Can't make it to NYC tonight to hear the Carnegie Hall Opening Night Gala performance? No problem! You'll be there with WRTI. Right here on, tonight at 7 pm, you're in a for a huge treat! It's a live audio performance by the legendary Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Sir Simon Rattle with the dazzling German violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter.

London-based, period-instrument ensemble Arcangelo presents a program of works by J. S. Bach and J. C. Bach, as well as Handel’s mythological tale of unrequited love, Apollo e Dafne, one of his most ambitious cantatas that set the stage for the brilliant operatic career that followed in the next 30 years of his life. Russian violinist Alina Ibragimova is the soloist in Bach's Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in A minor.

Arcangelo was founded in 2010 by the English conductor Jonathan Cohen. It has since recorded several albums and has appeared at various venues and early-music festivals throughout the UK and Europe.  This program is a broadcast of their concert this past Monday at Carnegie Hall.  Hear the live, recorded concert on Sunday, November 24 at 4 pm.
