Saturday, February 4, 2017
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


In this ‚ÄúGrand Tour‚Äù of the hugely influential Venetian musical style, Organist and Director of Music Daniel Hyde performs a recital exploring works ranging from luminaries such as Giovanni Gabrieli‚Äîthe organist of Venice’s venerable San Marco Basilica for nearly three decades‚ÄîMerula, and Vivaldi (as arranged by J.S. Bach and J.G. Walther) to 20th-century re-imaginings by Ligeti and Tippett.

This recital is part of La Serenissima: Music and Arts from The Venetian Republic, a citywide Carnegie Hall festival celebrating the dazzling artistic legacy of Venice with musical performances across the hall’s three stages and events at more than a dozen prestigious partner organizations that include additional musical offerings, panel discussions, readings, theatre, lectures, seminars, and art exhibitions.

“Daniel Hyde finds all the beauty and pain in this spellbinding sequence: an hour of listening that is both of the moment and utterly timeless.” The Independent

Music by Gabrieli, Merula, Vivaldi (arr. J.S. Bach and J. G. Walther), Ligeti and Tippett
