About Carnegie Hall's 120th Anniversary Celebration
The Music Hall, founded by Andrew Carnegie, opened its doors on May 5, 1891, and Carnegie Hall (as it was officially renamed in the 1894?1895 season) celebrates its 120th anniversary all year long with a number of special concerts and events. Carnegie Hall launches its year-long celebration with a special gala concert on Tuesday, April 12: a one-night-only event hosted by renowned singer/songwriter James Taylor and his special guests Barbara Cook, Steve Martin, Bette Midler, Kevin Pollak, Dianne Reeves, and Sting. All will pay tribute to the Hall?' illustrious history, highlighting many of the extraordinary musical and cultural events that have taken place on its legendary stages over twelve decades.

Also in April, Harper Collins, in partnership with Carnegie Hall, releases Carnegie Hall Treasures, a book by Pulitzer Prize-winning music writer Tim Page, which tells the story of Carnegie Hall's diverse lineage. Featuring more than 200 rare photographs and 30 removable facsimiles of collectible memorabilia, the narrative recounts memorable appearances by the many notable actors, dancers, writers, and public figures to grace the stage in the past 120 years.

Extending into the 2011?2012 season, three fascinating themes will provide context for Carnegie Hall's year-long 120th anniversary celebration: a focus on Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky in St. Petersburg, a look at New York at the turn of the century, and an exploration of great classical works written during the period in which Carnegie Hall was born.

The opening concerts of the 2011?2012 season will appropriately focus on Tchaikovsky, the conductor/composer who made his American conducting debut on the very first opening night program May 5, 1891. Carnegie Hall's Opening Night Gala on October 5, 2011 will feature one of St. Petersburg's greatest cultural treasures the Mariinsky Orchestra, led by Music Director Valery Gergiev, in a program to include works by Tchaikovsky, as well as Shostakovich and Rimsky-Korsakov. Maestro Gergiev and the orchestra will perform four additional October concerts, bringing their special sound to performances of Tchaikovsky's symphonies, one through six, as well as music by his successors.

Additional events focusing on Tchaikovsky and St. Petersburg include a Carnegie Hall Discovery Day, a chamber concert by Ensemble ACJW, and soprano Anna Netrebko in her New York recital debut. Audiences will also be invited to delve into aspects of Tchaikovsky's influences on other St. Petersburg artists from Balanchine to Fabergé through presentations by partner institutions, including The Harriman Institute at Columbia University, The New York Public Library, Sotheby's, Sacred Music in a Sacred Space, The School of American Ballet at Lincoln Center, and New York City Ballet, among others.

Complementing this look at Tchaikovsky and St. Petersburg, leading museums around the city including The Morgan Library and Museum, Museum of the City of New York, and The New-York Historical Society will examine New York City at the turn of the century through exhibits, lectures, and panel discussions. A Carnegie Hall Discovery Day in November will explore Carnegie Hall and its place in the history of New York City. In addition, throughout the season, audiences are invited to visit Carnegie Hall's newly refurbished exhibition on the history of the Hall with more than 100 new items on display in its Rose Museum. A complete schedule of events at Carnegie Hall and partner institutions will be announced in summer 2011.

Much of the breathtaking music heard at Carnegie Hall was created in one astonishing era the era into which Carnegie Hall was born. Beginning with Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade of 1888 and leading up to the outbreak of World War I, remarkable composers from around the world provided an unprecedented outpouring of music. Throughout 2011-2012, artists and ensembles will highlight works from this period on their Carnegie Hall programs. The focus will feature masterworks by Bruckner, Debussy, Dvorák, Mahler, Scriabin, Sibelius, Strauss, Stravinsky, Wolf, and more.
