About This Performance

When Dvořák’s Ninth premiered at Carnegie Hall in 1893, each movement ended with wild cheers from the crowd. It remains one of his best-loved symphonies to this day.

Please note: Conductor Christoph Eschenbach and violinist Christian Tetzlaff have had to cancel their appearances this week because of illness. Edo de Waart and Augustin Hadelich have agreed on short notice to replace these artists. The Schoenberg Violin Concerto will not be performed; in its place Mr. Hadelich will play the Beethoven Violin Concerto. The remainder of the program is unchanged.

Come for:

Brave new worlds: Beethoven’s revolutionary Romanticism and the “ear-bending” scope of his large-ensemble Violin Concerto nicely foreshadow Dvořák’s homage to American symphonic literature.

And more:

Veteran conductor Edo de Waart, who became Assistant Conductor to Leonard Bernstein at the age of 23, will be leading rising star Augustin Hadelich in his Walt Disney Concert Hall debut.

Programs, artists, dates, prices and availability subject to change.
