    Carnegie Hall 2022–23 Season to Include Rhiannon Giddens, Kronos Quartet, Steve Reich

    Carnegie Hall has announced its 2022–23 concert season, and featured among the performers taking the esteemed hall's stages are Rhiannon Giddens, who has been named a Perspectives artist for the season, and Kronos Quartet. Also included in the season is an all–Steve Reich program performed by Colin Currie Group and Synergy Vocals.

    Rhiannon Giddens, as a Carnegie Hall Perspectives artist for the 2022–2023 season, has curated four concerts through which she sheds light on the shared history of a variety of musical traditions around the world, the complex history of Black influence in American music, and more. Beginning October 15, she is joined by multi-instrumentalist and frequent collaborator Francesco Turrisi for an intimate concert in Weill Recital Hall that draws on diverse musical sources—such as American and Italian folk music, early Baroque songs, classical arrangements of African American spirituals, original songs, and deconstructed arias—to showcase the fluidity between classical and popular music. Next in the series, Giddens joins three of her fellow banjo players Amythyst Kiah, Leyla McCalla, and Allison Russell for Songs of Our Native Daughters in Stern Auditorium on November 4. Drawing on historic sources and personal narratives, they bring to life stories of struggle, resistance, and hope from a powerful Black female perspective. Giddens and Turrisi come together again on January 24 with bassist Jason Sypher, performing songs from their Grammy-winning album They’re Calling Me Home, conceived and recorded in Ireland during the COVID-19 lockdown. Her residency culminates on March 10 with Indigenous Connections, a collaboration of global instrumentation and strings led by Giddens, featuring women and nonbinary members of the Silkroad Ensemble and Tuscarora/Taino singer-songwriter Pura F that connects the music of indigenous North America to the world.

    Steve Reich will be celebrated with a concert performed by the percussionists of the Colin Currie Group and Synergy Vocals in Stern Auditorium on Tuesday, November 1. The program features the US premiere of Reich’s Traveler’s Prayer, a piece “unlike anything he has written before” (Guardian), co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall. Rounding out a program that spans five decades are two of Reich’s most enduring pieces: Tehillim and Music for 18 Musicians.

    Kronos Quartet, a past Carnegie Hall Perspectives artist, returns for a performance in Zankel Hall on Friday, January 27, 2013. The program includes several Carnegie Hall co-commissioned pieces by Susie Ibarra, Angélique Kidjo, Soo Yeon Lyuh, Aruna Narayan, Peni Candra Rini.

    Additionally, the 2022–23 season brings Audra McDonald, who released five albums on Nonesuch between 1998 and 2013, back to Stern Auditorium on December 3; a concert by yMusic, whose album with The Staves, The Way Is Read, was released on Nonesuch in 2017, in Zankel Hall on January 19; a new work by Tyondai Braxton given its New York premiere by Third Coast Percussion in Zankel Hall on January 20; a new work by Sarah Kirkland Snider performed by Decoda in Weill Recital Hall on March 8; and a celebration of the centenary of Nobel Peace Prize winner Andrei Sakharov by musicians including Gidon Kremer in Stern Auditorium on May 21.
