The Intimate Side of Carnegie Hall

On stage, there might be just one musician or more than hundred, but the music brings listeners in close. It’s almost a private conversation. On this edition of The Best of Carnegie Hall Live, we offer up three highlights from the 2011-12 season. 

To start things off, soprano Karita Mattila sings songs by Debussy and Joseph Marx. Then, pianist Leif Ove Andsnes plays music by Chopin. To wrap up the hour, early-music ensemble L’Arpeggiata re-creates the music of an old-world Holy Week celebration.
