Update: Paul Lewis was originally scheduled to perform the Piano Concerto but canceled.

The second concert of Orchestra of St. Luke’s 2018-19 Carnegie Hall Series will take place on Feb. 28, 2019. Principal Conductor Bernard Labadie will lead the ensemble.

Soprano Ying Fang will be featured, performing the aria “Non temer, amato bene,” K. 490 from the 1786 Vienna version of Mozart’s “Idomeneo.”

Additionally, pianist Jonathan Biss will perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat Major, Op. 19.

The orchestra will perform two of Haydn’s Sturm und Drang-style works: Overture to “L’isola disabitata” and Symphony No. 45 in F-sharp Minor, “Farewell.”

The concert will be held in the Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage.

Fang next performs at the Metropolitan Opera for “La Clemenza di Tito” alongside Matthew Polenzani, Joyce DiDonato, and Elza van den Heever.
