5 Classical Music Concerts to See in N.Y.C. This Weekend



Our guide to the city’s best classical music and opera happening this weekend and in the week ahead.

ALARM WILL SOUND at Merkin Hall (Sept. 19, 7:30 p.m.). Donnacha Dennehy’s opera on the Irish famine of the mid-19th century, “The Hunger,” returns to New York with this excellent ensemble and the original cast, the soprano Katherine Manley and the folk singer Iarla O Lionaird. Before that, in this opening concert of the Ecstatic Music festival, is a performance of “When Fire Is Allowed to Finish” by Eartheater (Alexandra Drewchin), with six movements of music arranged by the composers Aaron Parker, Steven Snowden and Conrad Winslow.

AMERICAN CLASSICAL ORCHESTRA at Alice Tully Hall (Sept. 19, 8 p.m.). A mainstay of the New York scene, this period-instrument ensemble is playing its 35th season this year. It celebrates with the overture to Rossini’s “Semiramide,” Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 and Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23, with David Belkovski playing the fortepiano. Thomas Crawford conducts.

LARA DOWNES at National Sawdust (Sept. 13, 7 p.m.). Downes will be joined by the harpist Bridget Kibbey, the singer Magos Herrera and her fellow pianist Simone Dinnerstein for “Holes in the Sky,” a concert of music by women composers including Clara Schumann, Florence Price, Meredith Monk and Paola Prestini. Clemency Burton-Hill, of WQXR, will moderate a discussion.

NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC at David Geffen Hall (Sept. 18-19, 7:30 p.m.; through Sept. 21). Jaap van Zweden seems to have settled on what he sees as the ideal balance of the new and the old at the Philharmonic, a vision of which this first subscription program of the year provides a decent example. There’s a popular classic, in the shape of excerpts from Prokofiev’s “Romeo and Juliet”; there’s a bit of a rarity, as the Broadway star Kelli O’Hara continues her longstanding interest in the classical world with Barber’s “Knoxville: Summer of 1915”; and there’s contemporary music, with the premiere of Philip Glass’s “King Lear Overture.”

JOSHUA ROMAN AND CONOR HANICK at the crypt of the Church of the Intercession (Sept. 18, 8 p.m.). The Crypt Sessions, deep in the bowels of a Harlem church, continue with this artful duo of Roman on cello and Hannick on piano playing a Schnittke sonata and two works by Arvo Pärt, “Fratres” and “Spiegel im Spiegel.” Good luck getting a ticket, though; Death of Classical’s series has become one of the most difficult tickets in town, and with good reason.

What’s on TV Monday: ‘An Elephant Sitting Still’ on Criterion and a PBS Documentary



AN ELEPHANT SITTING STILL (2019) Stream on The Criterion Channel. Hu Bo’s first and only feature film follows four characters over the course of a single day in a grimly industrial city in Northern China. For almost four hours their lonely, depressing lives are slowly woven together against the backdrop of a stifling society and an indifferent world and. After one character, Wei Bu (Peng Yuchang), a student at a mediocre school, sees his attempt to stand up to a bully backfire, he flees the bully’s brother, Yu Cheng (Zhang Yu). He is joined by Huang Ling (Wang Yuwen), a classmate embroiled in an affair with a school official, and Wang Jin (Liu Congxi), a man estranged from his family. “Unsparing as Hu’s anatomy of moral drift may be, there is something graceful in his sympathetic attention to lives defined almost entirely by disappointment and diminished hope,” A.O. Scott wrote in his review for The Times.
