NEW YORK—92nd Street Y (92Y) and Tisch Center for the Arts Director Hanna Arie-Gaifman today announced concert programming for the 2017/18 season, which brings both the world’s rising talent and most renowned artists to 92Y's intimate and acoustically rich Kaufmann Concert Hall. 92Y is proud to present unique musical initiatives and collaborations, in which artists can explore repertoire and embrace the creative connections that resonate strongly with them. As a result, audiences can engage more fully with the performers during a concert in a vibrant and intimate setting. The high level of excellence and an atmosphere in which musicians are nurtured are hallmarks of 92Y programming.  In its commitment to reaching and developing new classical music audiences, 92Y has championed educational initiatives that engage a diverse group of New York City public school students, who are given the opportunity to see concerts free of charge and interact with the artists as part of a larger curriculum.

“Soundspace,” expands to a five-concert series with a unifying theme exploring Schubert’s piano and vocal works.

Pianist Angela Hewitt returns for the second year of her “Bach Odyssey”—a four-year survey of the complete keyboard works by J.S. Bach.

The coming season also features the New York premiere of a 92Y co-commission by Bryce Dessner, and debuts by five distinguished artists who are new to 92Y’s stages.

In addition, 92Y continues to present the broad array of subscription series that have become its signature, such as “Distinguished Artists,” “Masters of the Keyboard,” “Chamber Ensembles” and “Art of the Guitar.” These series continually reinforce 92Y’s position as a presenter that collaborates closely with its performing artists to bring audiences engaging and passionately performed programs featuring a rich variety of repertoire from the past and the present.

“I am thrilled to launch a season of concerts that engages deeply with some of the greatest repertoire, both old and new,” said Dr. Arie-Gaifman.  “I am looking forward to welcoming a range of vocal repertoire back to 92Y next season, and to sublime and daring performances by some of today's most exciting instrumentalists, ensembles and singers.”

In a series of three recitals (April 13, May 4 and 11) pianist Shai Wosner delves into Schubert’s pioneering late piano sonatas, which Wosner says are “six great novels, rich with insights into the human condition.” April 13’s program features Sonatas in A and C minor, D. 845 and 958.
