Our guide to the city’s best classical music and opera happening this weekend and in the week ahead.

LAUREN CAULEY at Miller Theater (Jan. 21, 6 p.m.). Miller’s first free pop-up concert of the year showcases this violinist, a mainstay of the local new-music scene and a member of Ensemble Signal. She performs six recent works for solo violin, including world premieres by Richard Carrick and Piyawat Louilarpprasert and pieces by Clara Iannotta and Jessie Montgomery.

LUCAS DEBARGUE at National Sawdust (Jan. 22, 7 p.m.). In what is billed as his New York recital debut, this idiosyncratic but tremendously insightful French pianist, who shot to fame at the Tchaikovsky Competition in 2015, performs Ravel and Scarlatti, marking his release of 52 Scarlatti sonatas in a worthwhile new boxed set from Sony. Note that Debargue also appears at Carnegie Hall on Jan. 31, playing Galina Ustvolskaya’s Piano Concerto with the American Symphony.

TAKA KIGAWA at the Greene Space (Jan. 17, 12:30 p.m.). Appearing as part of Beginner’s Ear, a series curated by the New York Times contributor Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim that combines meditation with musical performances to create more mindful listening, Kigawa plays Boulez, Chopin, Debussy, Messiaen and Bach.

NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC at David Geffen Hall (Jan. 23, 7:30 p.m.; through Jan. 25). Gustavo Dudamel concludes his two-week stint at the helm of the Philharmonic with performances of Schubert’s Symphony No. 4 and Mahler’s “Das Lied von der Erde,” with Michelle DeYoung and Simon O’Neill as the vocal soloists.

‘REV. 23’ at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater (Jan. 17, 8 p.m.; Jan 18, 3 and 8 p.m.). The annual Prototype festival, now at the heart of new opera in New York, concludes on Sunday, but not before it has squeezed in three performances of this opera based on a new, “unpublished” chapter of the Book of Revelation by the librettist Cerise Lim Jacobs and the composer Julian Wachner, the music director at Trinity Wall Street. James Darrah directs a production that features Daniela Candillari conducting Novus NY.

RODERICK WILLIAMS AND JULIUS DRAKE at the 92nd Street Y (Jan. 22, 7:30 p.m.). The British baritone Williams is joined by Drake, the pianist and artistic director of the Y’s Vocal Series, for Beethoven’s “An die Ferne Geliebte” and Brahms’s “Die Schöne Magelone,” but it will be a “Die Schöne Magelone” with a difference, featuring readings by the essayist Adam Gopnik and animated films by the filmmaker Cristina Garcia Martin.
