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.

Songs of the Earth Program:
Twilight of the Himalayas (2012-13) World Premiere
The Last Paradise for Violin and Orchestra (1993)
The Song of the Earth (2005)
The resonance of Twilight of the Himalayas is a sound that has reached few ears. Violinist Cho-Liang Lin demonstrates the breathtaking virtuosity of The Last Paradise. And The Song of the Earth is a setting of the original texts, which Mahler only knew in translation.
