Carnegie Hall Review
Carnegie Hall is, of course, one of the world's most famous concert halls. Its incomparable acoustics make it one of the best venues in the world to hear classical music, but it's also strong in jazz, pop, cabaret, and folk music. Since the opening-night concert on May 5, 1891, which Tchaikovsky conducted, virtually every important musician the world has known has performed in this Italian Renaissance–style building. Leonard Bernstein had his debut here; Vladimir Horowitz made his historic return to the concert stage here. The world's top orchestras perform in the grand and fabulously steep 2,804-seat Isaac Stern Auditorium, the 268-seat Weill Recital Hall often features y oung talents making their New York debuts, and the subterranean 599-seat Judy and Arthur Zankel Hall attracts big-name artists such as the Kronos Quartet and Milton Nascimento to its modern and stylish space. A noted roster of family concerts is also part of Carnegie's programming. The Carnegie box office offers $10 rush tickets for some shows on the day of performance, or you may buy partial-view seating in advance at 50% off the full ticket price.
