Carnegie Hall Live

Broadcast schedule varies.

Produced by WQXR and Carnegie Hall, the sixth season of Carnegie Hall Live features some of the world’s best performers and ensembles in a wide range of styles, from early music to solo recitals to orchestral performances. The season kicks off with the opening night gala concert by Gustavo Dudamel conducting the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela. The dance-themed program features two pieces originally written as ballets: Ravel's La valse, an homage to the Viennese waltz, and Stravinsky's riot-inducing The Rite of Spring.

Carnegie Hall Live is hosted by WQXR’s Jeff Spurgeon who is joined by various co-hosts from the arts and media world, including Christine Goerke, Susan Graham, Anthony McGill, John Hockenberry, John Schaefer and Deborah Voigt, among others.
