The Orchestra of St. Luke's will perform the world premiere of a new work for piano and chamber orchestra by Charles Wuorinen in 2005-06, the New York-based group announced.

The orchestra's Carnegie Hall concerts, the centerpiece of its season, will also include a performance of Mozart's Requiem, a program of Handel arias starring tenor Ian Bostridge, and a visit from violinist Joshua Bell, who plays the Beethoven violin concerto.

Peter Serkin will serve as soloist for the Wuorinen premiere; Roberto Abbado conducts. Donald Runnicles, the OSL's principal conductor, will conduct the three remaining Carnegie Hall concerts.

In addition, the St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble, a smaller group made up of the OSL's core musicians, will continue its series at Carnegie's Zankel Hall, the Brooklyn Museum, the Chelsea Art Museum, and Dia:Beacon, a museum on the Hudson River in Beacon, New York. The Chelsea and Beacon concerts will include the world premieres of works by Chester Biscardi and Gabriela Frank.
