Performing The Majestic Music of J.S. Bach: A Modern Yet Historical Approach

VladimirJurowski600px.jpg
Conductor Vladimir Jurowski leads The Philadelphians in works by J.S. Bach, Mahler, and R. Strauss on WRTI, March 30 at 1 pm.

In recent years, J. S. Bach's music has been embraced by period performers, and played less frequently by big symphony orchestras. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, The Philadelphia Orchestra takes a very modern - yet historical - approach to his music in WRTI's Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast on Sunday, February 22 at 1 pm.

The broadcast also features Bach’s Piano Concerto No. 1, and music of Strauss and Mahler.
