Orchestra of St. Luke’s Performs Haydn and Mozart at Carnegie Hall

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall

57th Street and Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10019

Orchestra St. Luke’s Bernard Labadie Principal Conductor Carnegie Hall

Orchestra of St. Luke’s with principal conductor Bernard Labadie performs an evening of Haydn and Mozart. Haydn’s “Nelson Mass” might have been inspired by the visit of the British naval hero to the Esterházy estate where he worked. There’s certainly a martial flair to the work—trumpets and drums work overtime—particularly in its forceful Kyrie and Benedictus. There’s also lore surrounding Mozart’s Requiem, mostly courtesy of Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus, but the music reigns supreme. The choral music is grand, the passages for solo voices are expressive, and the orchestral writing anticipates the Romantics with its color and gripping dramatic power.  —Carnegie Hall
