Address Carnegie Hall 881 7th Ave, New York, NY 10019, USA

Inaugurated in 1891, Carnegie Hall is a very large and beautiful concert hall in New York on 7th Avenue.

A naturalized Scottish American industrialist and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie decided to finance a theatre in 1890. At the inauguration the following year, an exceptional concert by Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was given there.

The building was designed according to the plans of architect William Tuthill in an Italian Renaissance style. Built in brick and brown stone, it is one of the only large buildings in the Big Apple to be composed without any metal structure.

In 1925, Andrew’s widow sold Carnegie Hall to a real estate developer . Later, in the 1960s, the City of New York bought it and rented it to a non-profit organization under pressure from violinist Isaac Stern. The building was declared a historical monument in 1964, and was completely renovated between 1983 and 1995. Currently, it can accommodate up to 2,804 spectators in its main hall and also has three auditoriums: the Main Hall, the Recital Hall and the Chamber Music Hall.

The concert of the century was given there on May 18, 1976. It brought together the greatest musicians of the time, Isaac Stern, Vladimir Horowitz, Yehudi Menuhin, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Mstislav Rostropovitch. They are accompanied by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Leonard Bernstein.
