“Carnegie Hall announced on Tuesday that it would return to full programming next season with a slate of more than 150 concerts,” writes Javier C. Hernández in Tuesday’s (4/26) New York Times. “The 2022-23 season, which is scheduled to run from September to June, will feature the presenter’s typical variety of soloists and ensembles, but with an earnest focus on female musicians and composers. ‘We wanted to show that in every area of music, whether it’s jazz, classical or world music, there are truly extraordinary women who are recognized as such on the world platform,’ Clive Gillinson, Carnegie’s executive and artistic director, said … The season’s lineup includes the eminent pianist Mitsuko Uchida and the singer-songwriter Rhiannon Giddens, who each will organize a series of Perspectives concerts; the flutist Claire Chase, as artist in residence; and appearances by conductors including Marin Alsop, who will lead the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra … and Susanna Mälkki, who will lead the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra…. In February, the hall will host the Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine…. The Philadelphia Orchestra and its music director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, will take the stage on opening night, Sept. 29.”
