Carnegie Hall Will Start Livestreaming Concerts Next Week

Carnegie Hall Will Start Livestreaming Concerts Next Week | opera | Scoop.it

The Metropolitan Opera has used streaming to bring performances to movie theaters worldwide; the Berlin Philharmonic offers a library of performances on its Digital Concert Hall. Starting next week, Carnegie Hall will go global, partnering with the six-year-old classical-music portal medici.tv to stream concerts from the home that Mitropoulos busted out of.


First up on Tuesday is a recital by mezzo-soprano Joyce Di Donato, a semi-divine creature of the operatic stage who just earned her own pop-culture cred by delivering the national anthem before the final game of the World Series. Three more recitals follow this fall: the violinists Anne-Sophie Mutter on November 18 and Leonidas Kavakos on November 22, and the pianist Daniil Trifonov on December 9. All will be streamed live and remain available for 90 days. And all of them will be free.


Carnegie Hall, woven into the dense fabric of midtown, doesn’t have the option of turning indoor concerts into outdoor block parties. But the webcast changes the answer to that old riddle about getting to Carnegie Hall: If you can’t make it, Carnegie Hall will come to you.
