Jazz pianist Brad Mehldau teams up with reigning American soprano Renee Fleming for a concert of surprises, including a new commission from Carnegie Hall.

The performance's eclectic program includes the world premiere of The Book of Hours: Love Poems to God, based on the work of German poet Rainer Maria Rilke, and works by composers as varied as George Gershwin and Nirvana's Kurt Cobain.
