2014–2015 Season Highlights Overview
Carnegie Hall launches its 2014–2015 season on Wednesday, October 1 with a celebratory Opening
Night Gala concert by the Berliner Philharmoniker led by Sir Simon Rattle in a program that includes
Bruch’s Violin Concerto with Carnegie Hall Perspectives artist, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, as well as
Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances and the closing scenes from Stravinsky’s The Firebird. Sir Simon
and the Philharmoniker return for three additional concerts that week with programs to include music of
Stravinsky and Rachmaninoff, a complete Schumann symphony cycle, and the US premiere of a new
work by Georg Friedrich Haas, commissioned by Carnegie Hall and the Berliner Philharmoniker. The
orchestra’s Carnegie Hall concerts are part of an extended New York City residency that will also include
two performances of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, presented by Lincoln Center in a co-presentation with
Park Avenue Armory.
A major highlight of Carnegie Hall’s new season will be UBUNTU: Music and Arts of South Africa, a
three-week citywide festival presented from October 10 to November 5, 2014, saluting this vibrant nation
and the many threads that make up its diverse culture with dozens of events across New York City,
including music, visual arts, film, and more.
Carnegie Hall’s UBUNTU programming will feature performances by legendary artists including
trumpeter, vocalist, and composer Hugh Masekela, vocalist Vusi Mahlasela, world-renowned vocal
ensemble Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Grammy Award-winning vocalist Angélique Kidjo, revered
pianist and composer Abdullah Ibrahim, and an evening of short films by acclaimed South African visual
artist William Kentridge with live musical accompaniment. The festival will also provide a window for
audiences into forms of South African music that may be lesser known, showcasing the powerful
spirituality and ecstasy of maskandi music of the Zulu people, two thrilling generations of South African
jazz musicians, and the country’s unique Cape Malay choral singing that blends Dutch folksongs with
beautifully ornamented vocal traditions from as far afield as Malaysia, Arabia, and East Africa. Two rising
South African classical sopranos—Pretty Yende and Elza van den Heever—will also each make their
New York recital debuts.
UBUNTU extends throughout New York City with events at leading cultural institutions. Festival partners
include: African Film Festival Inc.; Anna Zorina Gallery; Apollo Theater; Axis Gallery; Flushing Town Hall;
Jazz at Lincoln Center; The Juilliard School; Keyes Art Projects; (Le) Poisson Rouge; Live from the New
York Public Library; New Heritage Theatre Group; The New York Public Library; Queens College, City
University of New York; Ubuntu Education Fund; World Music Institute; and the Yossi Milo Gallery.
Carnegie Hall’s Perspectives series of artist-curated programs will continue in 2014–2015, with
celebrated mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato and acclaimed violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter each creating
personal series showcasing their creativity and musical vision.
Repertoire featured in Joyce DiDonato’s multi-event Perspectives series will range from familiar and
forgotten works from the Baroque and bel canto eras to new music written especially for her. Her series
includes a concert performance of Handel’s Alcina with The English Concert and Harry Bicket with Ms.
DiDonato in the title role; a recital of Venice-themed works; a chamber concert with the Brentano Quartet
featuring the New York premiere of a work by Jake Heggie as well as Heggie’s arrangements of music by
young songwriters as part of WMI’s Lullaby Project; and an evening of bel canto arias and ensembles
with The Philadelphia Orchestra and starry vocalist friends. As part of her Perspectives, Ms. DiDonato
will also share her gifts as a music educator, taking part in a number of education and community
programs presented by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.
Throughout her long career, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter has been widely recognized for her passionate
commitment to artistic excellence, her dedication to the growth of classical music, her championing of
new music, and her support of young artists—all core themes of her Perspectives series at Carnegie
Hall. Ms. Mutter’s six-concert Perspectives includes appearances as soloist with the Berliner
Philharmoniker, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, New World Symphony, and the Mutter
Virtuosi as well as chamber concerts with renowned performers including cellist Lynn Harrell and
Carnegie Hall’s 2014–2015 Season, Page 4 of 19
pianists Yefim Bronfman and Lambert Orkis. Ms. Mutter’s programs will include a number of works
written especially for her, including music by Sebastian Currier, Norbert Moret, and André Previn.
Composer Meredith Monk has been named as holder of Carnegie Hall’s Debs Composer Chair for the
2014–2015 season. As part of her season-long residency, works by this visionary composer will be
featured in five concerts at Carnegie Hall and in a partner event at (Le) Poisson Rouge, performed by
ensembles such as the St. Louis Symphony with David Robertson, American Composers Orchestra
with George Manahan, and a host of acclaimed artists. The residency will culminate with two Zankel Hall
concerts—the first in March, the second in May—celebrating Ms. Monk’s 50th anniversary of creating
work in New York City, featuring all-Monk programs performed by collaborators from the jazz, new music,
classical, and electronic/pop worlds, including the iconic Meredith Monk and Vocal Ensemble, which the
artist founded in 1978.
Carnegie Hall focuses on the great resurgence of interest among artists and audiences in the music of
the late Renaissance and early Baroque eras. Before Bach, a month-long series in April 2015, will
feature performances by some of the world’s most exciting early music artists, all performing music
written before 1685—the birth year of Johann Sebastian Bach and Georg Frideric Handel—illuminating
musical masterworks and bringing previously hidden corners of this repertoire to life. Featured
performers include L’Arpeggiata led by Christina Pluhar; Sir John Eliot Gardiner with the English
Baroque Soloists and The Monteverdi Choir; Les Violons du Roy and La Chapelle de Québec led by
Bernard Labadie; viola da gamba master Jordi Savall in solo recital and as leader of Le Concert des
Nations; harpsichordist Kristian Bezuidenhout; vocal ensembles Pomerium and I Fagiolini; and
renowned British vocal ensemble The Tallis Scholars with founder and director Peter Phillips. In
addition to the Tallis Scholars’ Carnegie Hall performance, Peter Phillips will lead a multi-day workshop
for young professional choral singers, organized by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute. Workshop
participants will join his group for a culminating concert at Church of St. Ignatius Loyola to include
Thomas Tallis’s 40-part motet “Spem in alium.”
Additional highlights of Carnegie Hall’s classical music offerings next season include the first New York
concerts by the Boston Symphony Orchestra with Music Director Andris Nelsons in April 2015 and allstar
duos in recital, with violinist Leonidas Kavakos collaborating with pianist Yuja Wang; violinist Gidon
Kremer performing with pianist Daniil Trifonov; and soprano Dorothea Röschmann appearing with
pianist Mitsuko Uchida.
In addition to the array of concerts presented as part of the UBUNTU festival, world music highlights
include a concert with Indian tabla master Zakir Hussain, an evening of Italian folk music with Lucilla
Galeazzi, and a performance by Grammy Award-winning flamenco singer Diego el Cigala.
Season pop highlights will include a Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage concert by five-time Tony Award
winner Audra McDonald, featuring classic songs from musical theater and film, and pieces written for her
by leading songwriters. In addition, Steven Reineke and The New York Pops will present six
performances with special guests to include Broadway star Kelli O’Hara; Matthew Morrison, leading
man from FOX’s Glee; and two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster.
Music education and community programming created by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI)
continues to expand, serving people of all ages in all five boroughs of New York City, nationally, and
around the globe. The National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America (NYO-USA),

Otter; vocal ensemble the Tallis Scholars, and pianists Richard Goode and Warren Jones. WMI will

children ages 3-6 in all five boroughs of New York City, and a free Family Day open-house in Carnegie

The new Education Wing—which will include 24 rooms designed especially for music education and a
state-of-the-art-home for Carnegie Hall’s Archives, all located on the landmark building’s upper floors—
will open with a series of special events for young musicians, students, and educators, providing a
wonderful setting in which to inspire a lifelong love of music.

DETAILS OF CARNEGIE HALL’S 2014–2015 SEASON
UBUNTU: Music and Arts of South Africa Festival
From the incredible diversity of South Africa’s dizzying patchwork of cultures and 11 official languages
emerges a dynamic and impassioned cultural life like no other. From October 10 to November 5, 2014,
Carnegie Hall salutes this vibrant nation with UBUNTU: Music and Arts of South Africa, a citywide festival
that features a varied and fascinating lineup of artists and dozens of events across New York City,
exploring music, visual arts, film, and more.
Roughly translating to mean “I am because you are,” ubuntu is a philosophy from Southern Africa that
emphasizes the importance of community, including recent moves of reconciliation and inclusion in South
Africa that were fostered by the late Nelson Mandela. Dedicated to Nelson Mandela’s legacy, Carnegie
Hall’s UBUNTU festival celebrates the many threads that make up South Africa’s diverse culture.

South Africa; Grammy Award-winning vocalist Angélique Kidjo honoring the legendary singer and

people, two thrilling generations of South African jazz musicians, and the country’s unique Cape Malay

Perspectives: Joyce DiDonato
Celebrated mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato curates a multi-event Perspectives series that showcases
her vocal creativity and multifaceted talents, ranging from programs that include familiar and forgotten
repertoire from the Baroque and bel canto eras to new works written expressly for her.
Ms. DiDonato’s Perspectives begins in October 2014, when she sings the title role in a concert
performance of Handel’s Alcina with The English Concert led by Harry Bicket in Stern Auditorium /
Perelman Stage. She returns in November to perform a Venice-inspired recital with pianist David Zobel,
featuring music inspired by the magical Italian city that spans from the Baroque to the twentieth century.
Ms. DiDonato’s Perspectives moves to Zankel Hall in February for a concert with the Brentano String
Quartet to include the New York premiere of Camille Claudel: Into the Fire by composer Jake Heggie, a
frequent collaborator. The program also includes the world premiere of MotherSongs, specially
commissioned by Carnegie Hall and arranged by Mr. Heggie. The work features songs composed as
part of the Lullaby Project—a series of songwriting workshops created by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music
Institute that provides young expectant mothers throughout New York City with the opportunity to write a
lullaby for their child. Ms. DiDonato completes her Perspectives series in March in Stern Auditorium /
Perelman Stage with The Philadelphia Orchestra and conductor Maurizio Benini, singing both beloved
and rare bel canto arias and ensembles with close colleagues soprano Nicole Cabell and tenor
Lawrence Brownlee.
As part of her Perspectives, Ms. DiDonato also shares her gifts as a dynamic educator and passionate
advocate for music by taking part in a number of education and community programs created by
Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute. In addition to her work with the Lullaby Project, her involvement
includes a series of master classes for young singers and work with New York City middle school singers
who take part in WMI’s Count Me In program.
Carnegie Hall’s 2014–2015 Season, Page 7 of 19
Perspectives: Anne-Sophie Mutter
Since making her international debut at the Lucerne Festival in 1976, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter has
been widely recognized for her passionate commitment to artistic excellence, her dedication to the growth
of classical music, her championing of new music, and her support of young artists—all core themes of
her Perspectives series at Carnegie Hall, which includes six performances throughout the 2014–2015
season. Reflecting her focus on advancing the future of classical music, Ms. Mutter champions 20th- and
21st-century violin repertoire throughout her series, including contemporary works written for her by
Sebastian Currier, Norbert Moret, and André Previn.
Ms. Mutter launches her series in October, performing Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in Stern Auditorium /
Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall’s festive Opening Night Gala concert with Sir Simon Rattle and the
Berliner Philharmoniker, an orchestra she first collaborated with in 1977, but with which she has never
appeared in the United States. In November, she is joined by pianist Lambert Orkis, her artistic partner
of more than 25 years, for a program to include Franck’s Violin Sonata, a work they performed at their
Carnegie Hall recital debut in 1988. Later that month, Ms. Mutter performs the US premiere of André
Previn’s Violin Concerto No. 2 with members of the Mutter Virtuosi, an ensemble of young students and
professional string players whom she has mentored, all alumni of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation.
Ms. Mutter returns in February 2015 as soloist with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, led by
Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, performing Sibelius’s Violin Concerto. In mid-April, she shares the stage
with longtime collaborator cellist Lynn Harrell as well as pianist Yefim Bronfman in a chamber music
concert that features piano trios by Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. In late-April, as a finale to her
Perspectives, Ms. Mutter will perform Berg’s Violin Concerto and the New York premiere of Norbert
Moret’s En rêve with the New World Symphony, the academy for post-graduate, pre-professional
musicians co-founded by conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, a concert that is also part of Maestro Tilson
Thomas’s 70th birthday celebration this season.
The Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair at Carnegie Hall, 2014–2015 Season
Meredith Monk has been appointed to the Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair at Carnegie Hall
for the 2014–2015 season. Throughout the year, piano, orchestral, and vocal works by the visionary
composer will be featured in five concerts at Carnegie Hall and at a partner event at (Le) Poisson Rouge,
performed by ensembles such as the St. Louis Symphony and American Composers Orchestra, and
a host of acclaimed soloists. The residency culminates with two concerts—the first in March, the second
in May—celebrating the composer’s 50th anniversary of creating work in New York City, featuring all-
Monk programs performed by collaborators from the jazz, new music, classical, and electronic/pop
worlds, including the iconic Meredith Monk and Vocal Ensemble, which the artist founded in 1978.
Ms. Monk’s residency opens with a November concert at the West Village venue (Le) Poisson Rouge,
featuring pianists Bruce Brubaker and Ursula Oppens performing an all-piano program of the
composer’s works. The following evening in Zankel Hall, members of Meredith Monk and Vocal
Ensemble join the American Composers Orchestra for a performance of Monk’s Night, a haunting work
for vocal ensemble and orchestra composed in 1996 as part of the music theater piece, The Politics of
Quiet. In February, Ensemble ACJW gives the premiere of a new work by Ms. Monk, commissioned by
Carnegie Hall. In March, the St. Louis Symphony, led by David Robertson, presents the New York
premiere of Monk’s Weave, a texturally lush piece for two voices, chamber orchestra, and chorus that
exemplifies the composer’s penchant for unique vocal setting, featuring Katie Geissinger and Theo
Bleckmann as vocal soloists.
Also in March, Ms. Monk kicks off a celebration of her 50th anniversary of creating work in New York City
with an all-Monk program that features her Vocal Ensemble and, as guest performers, colleagues from
the new music, classical, jazz, and DJ worlds including Jessye Norman, John Zorn, Don Byron, DJ
Spooky, Todd Reynolds, and more. The concert spotlights a range of works, including selections from
her highly acclaimed Songs of Ascension (2008) and from the opera ATLAS (1991), inspired by the life of
Alexandra David-Néel, the first Western woman to travel in Tibet. The festivities continue in May when the

Before Bach Series
In recent decades, interest in the music of the late Renaissance and early Baroque eras has seen a great
resurgence among artists and audiences. Leading this movement is a generation of performers who have
devoted themselves to introducing concertgoers to the array of music written before 1685—the birth year
of both Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel. This season, Carnegie Hall celebrates this
musical movement with Before Bach, a month-long series that begins in April 2015 and features 13
concerts by some of the world’s most exciting early-music performers.
Critically acclaimed L’Arpeggiata, led by Christina Pluhar, kicks off this artistic focus, performing the
music of Henry Purcell and selections from Francesco Cavalli’s early operas in two distinct concerts.
Later in the month, Monteverdi specialist Sir John Eliot Gardiner leads lauded period-instrument
ensembles the English Baroque Soloists and The Monteverdi Choir in two early Baroque
masterpieces by the composer: the ambitious sacred work Vespro della Beata Vergine and a concert
performance of L’Orfeo, one of the earliest surviving operas still performed today. Canadian ensembles
Les Violons du Roy and La Chapelle de Québec, led by Bernard Labadie, delve into an all-Purcell
program, featuring excerpts from King Arthur and The Fairy Queen, as well as the composer’s tragic
landmark opera Dido and Aeneas with soprano Dorothea Röschmann as the opera’s heroine. In the
same week, viola da gamba master Jordi Savall performs a solo recital and also leads Le Concert des
Nations in a program that features compositions from the French Baroque period, including François
Couperin, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and Jean-Baptiste Forqueray.
As the series continues, celebrated harpsichordist Kristian Bezuidenhout performs a captivating
program of instrumental music, and Fretwork, a consort of viols hailing from the United Kingdom,
performs works by Matthew Locke, Orlando Gibbons, and Henry Purcell. Placing particular emphasis on
vocal music of the Renaissance, the celebration also features vocal ensembles Pomerium and I
Fagiolini, presenting sacred and secular glories. In addition, the renowned British vocal ensemble, the
Tallis Scholars, is featured in two concerts. They bring vocal works by Josquin des Préz and William
Byrd to their first performance in Weill Recital Hall. The second performance features Tallis Scholars
founder and director Peter Phillips leading a multi-day workshop for young professional choral singers,
created by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, which culminates with workshop participants joining his
group for a program at Church of St. Ignatius Loyola. The program concludes with Thomas Tallis’s
stirring 40-part motet, “Spem in alium.”
Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute—2014–2015 Season Highlights
Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI) will offer a wide range of music education and community
programs throughout the 2014–2015 season, specially designed for students, teachers, families, young
musicians, and audience members of all ages. WMI’s programs—most offered at low or no cost to
participants—are expected to reach close to 450,000 people in the coming season.
The opening of The Judith and Burton Resnick Education Wing at Carnegie Hall in fall 2014 will
provide a new home to WMI’s programs, bringing many of its programs to inspirational spaces in the
landmark building for the first time. Young musicians, families, students, and teachers will have the
opportunity to share musical experiences in 24 world-class spaces dedicated to music education,
including interactive and educational musical events for families; rehearsals by students, WMI artists, and

Link Up, WMI’s innovative music education program for students in grades 3-5 continues to grow in the
new season; the program will serve 70 partner orchestras in the US and Canada, welcoming back
orchestra partners in Spain and Japan. In addition, WMI continues to expand its Musical Connections
program which harnesses music to serve a wide range of people in challenging circumstances throughout
New York City, who might not otherwise have access to music. As part of this work, WMI will play a key
role next season in NeON Arts, a new initiative recently launched by the New York City Department of
Probation, which connects community-based artists and arts organizations in seven neighborhoods with
court-involved youth and adults in their area, challenging them to explore the arts, learn new skills, and
develop positive peer relationships.

Ensemble ACJW’s in-school residencies represent one of the largest in-depth collaborations between a
cultural institution and New York City public schools. Each musician fellow is partnered with a public
school for a performance residency that totals 25 days over the course of the year. Fellows bring mastery
of their instruments as well as a professional performer’s perspective to music classrooms in all five
boroughs of New York City, partnering with each school’s instrumental music teacher to strengthen
students’ musical skills through a tailored and creativity-rich approach, according to the school’s needs.
In-school activities include instrumental teaching, large-scale creative projects, and performance
demonstrations. Coupled with the residency, fellows create, develop, and perform in interactive ensemble
concerts with Ensemble ACJW colleagues in each of the ensemble members’ schools.
Throughout the season, fellows will also participate in community-based performances at multiple nontraditional
venues across New York City through Musical Connections, a program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill
Music Institute. This program is designed to bring live music to people coping with challenging
circumstances in healthcare settings, correctional facilities, and senior-service organizations. Fellows also
perform several times a year as part of WMI’s free Neighborhood Concerts.
Created in 2007 by Carnegie Hall’s Executive and Artistic Director Clive Gillinson and The Juilliard
School’s President Joseph Polisi, this innovative fellowship program is dedicated to supporting young
professional musicians as they develop careers as top-quality performers, innovative programmers, and
dedicated teachers, fully engaged with the communities in which they live and work. For more
