Carnegie Hall Plans to Return to Full Hours in 2022-23 – NBC New York

Carnegie Hall plans to return to a relatively full schedule next season for the first time since 2018-19 by hosting around 150 events including Kirill Petrenko’s first New York appearances as music director of the Berlin Philharmonic.

Carnegie on Tuesday announced a schedule for 2022-23 that includes about 70 events in the 2,800-seat Stern Auditorium. Petrenko, who succeeded Simon Rattle as Berlin’s chief conductor for the 2019-20 season, directs three performances from November 10-12.

Concerts include Great Britain’s City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra with Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla (October 22) and the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Gustavo Dudamel (October 25-26). The Los Angeles Philharmonic has not been to Carnegie since 1990 and the Birmingham Orchestra since 1992.

Carnegie’s program also includes the Cleveland Orchestra with Franz Welser-Möst (January 18), the Vienna Philharmonic with conductor Christian Thielemann (March 3-5), the French Ensemble Intercontemporain with conductor Matthias Pintscher (25 March), the Washington National Symphony Orchestra with Gianandrea Noseda (April 18) and the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra with Susanna Mälkki (May 9).

Carnegie presented about 170 events in 2018-19, including 76 at Stern, and a similar schedule was announced for the following season before the coronavirus pandemic caused Carnegie Hall to close on March 13, 2020 and reduce the schedule to 100 events.

Carnegie Hall reopened Oct. 6 and will host about 115 events this season, including 58 at Stern. There were few large-scale orchestral concerts in the fall, as Carnegie maintained a full schedule while assessing the public health situation. The Royal London Philharmonic in late January and the Vienna Philharmonic in late February were the only large-scale European symphony orchestras to visit.

The next season begins on September 29 with Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra and pianist Daniil Trifonov.

Soprano Renée Fleming returns to Verdi with the fourth act of “Otello” with tenor Russell Thomas and Nézet-Séguin conducting the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra (June 22).

Ukraine’s Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra will perform on February 15 with director Theodore Kuchar and pianist Stanislav Khristenko, both Ukrainian-Americans.

The Perspectives series will be led by pianist Mitsuko Uchida and singer-songwriter Rhiannon Giddens. Flutist Claire Chase will serve as creative chair of the Hall.
