Live From Lincoln Center
Greece is commonly seen as the birthplace of the Classical ideal. The extraordinary musicians of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center journey to this remarkable land, performing works embodying the essence of classical music in iconic settings like the ancient theatre of Larissa and the historic Church of the Taxiarchon in Pelion – culminating in a mighty version of Mendelssohn’s Octet.
Live From Lincoln Center broadcasts world-class performances from the stages of Lincoln Center into homes across America. The pioneering series has sought to democratize the performing arts, making luminaries ranging from Luciano Pavarotti and Beverly Sills to Emma Thompson and Nathan Lane available to hundreds of millions of viewers, collecting 17 Emmy and 2 Peabody Awards.
