“Esa-Pekka Salonen will conduct the Philharmonia Orchestra of London in performances of Bruckner and his own cello concerto,” writes Michael Cooper in Wednesday’s (1/31) New York Times. “Manfred Honeck will lead the Pittsburgh Symphony in Mahler and Beethoven. And William Christie and Les Arts Florissants will leave their usual Baroque era behind and try their hands at the Classical style with a performance of Haydn’s oratorio ‘The Creation.’ Those are some of the highlights of next season’s Great Performers series at Lincoln Center…. The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center said that it would focus on Russian music next season, including a special winter festival and a performance by the Borodin Quartet. Its season will also feature the Escher String Quartet playing a new work by Andrew Norman and two programs celebrating the composer George Crumb, who turns 90 in October 2019. The society said that its popular summer evening series would return to Alice Tully Hall … Lincoln Center’s Great Performers series includes Hilary Hahn playing Bach … the early-music group Accademia Bizantina; and some … chamber music … including the Takacs Quartet and a starry trio featuring the violinist Joshua Bell, the pianist Jeremy Denk and the cellist Steven Isserlis.”
