More About Carnegie Hall+
“Carnegie Hall+ opens a window to viewers to some of the world’s most thrilling artists and arts destinations, creating an at-home journey of musical discovery,” said Carnegie Hall’s Executive and Artistic Director Clive Gillinson. “Featuring an extensive and growing collection of the world’s finest presentations, the channel invites people to enjoy full-length arts performances and films wherever they may be, presented on a scale previously unavailable. While we believe that you can’t replace the power of live performances, Carnegie Hall+ is especially important at a time when everyone has come to expect access to the best of every kind of programming at the push of a button. In addition, the channel offers unique access to the most remarkable performances from around the world in a way that would otherwise require an impossible travel schedule to see live.”
Launched in December 2021, Carnegie Hall+ was created through a partnership between Carnegie Hall and Unitel, the world’s leading classical music audiovisual producer and distributor. Presentations featured on the channel—including full-length concerts, operas, dance, documentaries, artist profiles, and family programming—are selected from Unitel’s stellar catalog, one of the largest of its kind in the world, and curated by Carnegie Hall. The premium channel is aligned with Carnegie Hall’s mission to bring the transformative power of music to the widest possible audience.
Founded more than 50 years ago in Munich, Germany by Leo Kirch and Herbert von Karajan, Unitel has worked with artists for more than half a century to capture landmark performances and productions utilizing the latest available technology. Given the company’s long-standing emphasis on quality, Carnegie Hall+ enables viewers to create an optimal home theater experience, offering state-of-the-art video and audio formats with all presentations offered in high-definition (HD) and newer programs available in 4K Ultra HD (4K UHD) and Dolby Atmos.
“Unitel’s unparalleled collection of the world’s leading performers features many artists who have long been favorites performing at Carnegie Hall, so we thought that they would be the ideal partner for the creation of our virtual stage, Carnegie Hall+,” said Mr. Gillinson. “In addition, we will be expanding Carnegie Hall+ over time to embrace many other genres of music so that, like Carnegie Hall, the channel will represent the best of every area of music.”
