For over 250 years, Handel's Messiah has stood as one of the most beloved works in classical music history. Handel's 1741 masterpiece includes some of the most joyful and memorable music ever written, and is the most performed choral work in the English language. For this year's concert, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Manze, will be joined onstage by the Westminster Symphonic Choir and a selection of distinguished guest soloists, including mezzo-soprano Tamara Mumford and soprano Joelle Harvey. Experience the true meaning of the season at this uplifting concert from the New York Philharmonic, which includes such favorites as "And the Glory of the Lord" and the "Hallelujah" chorus.

"Everyone listened reverently, with an almost religious respect. ...Not one person stirred" recalled the cellist who played the premiere of Messaien's extraordinary Quartet for the End of Time. That concert, one of history's most moving and unique, took place in a frigid hall at the Nazi camp where the composer was interned in the winter of 1941. From that moment on, the Quartet for the End of Time has been acclaimed as one of the 20th century's greatest works, and this season's performance commemorates the 100th anniversary of the composer's birth. Beginning with the creation, via Milhaud's irrepressible, jazz-inflected score, the program then calls on two of France's most remarkable composers -- Boulez and Ravel -- before concluding with Messiaen's apocalyptic vision of the end of time.
