Revisiting Beethoven's Symphonies with Yannick Nezet-Seguin

Marco Borggreve
Yannick Nezet-Seguin

The Philadelphia Orchestra is performing a two-year cycle of Beethoven’s symphonies. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, although known to generations of music lovers, these great works continue to provide insights into Western musical heritage.

Listen to Philadelphia Orchestra MusicDirector Yannick Nezet-Seguin talk with WRTI’s Susan Lewis at the start of the 2013-2014 season, about new musician appointments and his decision to begin the two-year cycle of Beethoven’s symphonies with the 9th.

Susan writes and produces stories about music and the arts. She’s host and producer of WRTI’s TIME IN online interview series, and contributes weekly intermission interviews for The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert series. She’s also been a regular host of WRTI’s Live from the Performance Studio sessions.
