Our friends at the New York Philharmonic have announced the full plans for the newly created Biennial, taking place May-June 2014, with concerts ranging from new orchestral music to opera to chamber music. Lincoln Center is delighted to be involved as a presenting partner, offering a recital with pianist Marino Formenti on June 4, 2014, featuring works by Franz Lizst paired with contemporary master composers.
Learn more about the complete Biennial festival here.
Take your seats! Live From Lincoln Center host Audra McDonald takes to the stage this week, as featured performer for her own special concert on PBS.
