“Gianandrea Noseda leading the London Symphony Orchestra in the Verdi Requiem, the baritone Christian Gerhaher singing a program of Mahler lieder, and the pianist Jeremy Denk playing a recital of music from medieval to modern times will be among the highlights of next season’s Great Performers series at Lincoln Center,” writes Michael Cooper in Wednesday’s (2/3) New York Times. The series “will feature several prominent symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles, recitals and chamber music concerts, among other offerings. In addition to two London Symphony concerts with Mr. Noseda, who was just named the next music director of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, it will feature appearances by Ivan Fischer conducting the Budapest Festival Orchestra in two Beethoven programs and Vladimir Jurowski leading the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Smaller ensembles, including Gabrieli; the Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra; the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment; and Les Arts Florissants, led by William Christie, will all perform. Recitals will include one by the soprano Diana Damrau, accompanied by Xavier de Maistre on the harp, in works by Debussy, Strauss, Hahn and Chausson; and the New York recital debut of the soprano Anne Schwanewilms, accompanied by Malcolm Martineau on the piano.”
