Among the most anticipated programs this season are six New York debuts of the German pianist Alexander Krichel; the award-winning German baritone Holger Falk, with pianist Julius Drake; French Quatuor Voce with Metropolitan Opera harpist, Emmanuel Ceysson; British violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen, performing with composer/pianist Huw Watkins; the French Trio Karénine, and the acclaimed Ensemble Correspondances, from France. Other highlights include the return of the ever-popular Dutch wind quintet Califax, and the Italian Quartetto di Cremona.

The Frick concert series also has a long history of reaching audiences far beyond those present for its live performances. Since their debut, the concerts were rebroadcast on the Municipal Broadcasting System, American Public Radio, WNYC, and WQRX. Beginning this fall, programs from the 2017–18 season will be carried on national public radio stations, and later on The Frick Collection website. Concerts from recent years are available on the WQRX website, at In addition, three concerts from this past season were broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in the United Kingdom.
