Matthias Tarnopolsky, president and chief executive officer, said the extended invitation came from a long and deep relationship between the orchestra and Carnegie Hall, which dates back 120 years.
“It was a very organic conversation because we were finding our way in the dark through a pandemic,” said Tarnopolsky. “Due to the length of the relationship between the two organizations and the depth of that relationship, this seemed like a very meaningful, natural and very beautiful way of showing that music had returned to New York. “
The Carnegie Hall concert gives the orchestra the opportunity to perform all of Beethoven’s symphonies that were planned to be performed in Philadelphia. The Beethoven NOW series for the 2019-2020 season has been shortened by a pandemic.
“Our entire Beethoven NOW project has disappeared,” said Tarnopolsky. “I’m very happy to be able to revive it because I can hear more about it on stage in Philadelphia and when we announce the season at Carnegie Hall in collaboration with Carnegie.”
