It was back in February, 2016 at Verizon Hall, that The Philadelphia Orchestra  gave a performance of Dvorak’s 7th Symphony that glowed with interpretive elegance in the hands of guest conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada. In this same concert, we were treated to Augustin Hadelich’s splendid reading of Johannes Brahms' D major Violin Concerto.

It’s hard to believe it’s been seven years since Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck made his Philadelphia Orchestra debut. And WRTI was there in Verizon Hall when he directed the Philadelphians in a program of Johann Strauss II, Mozart, and a riveting performance of Dvorak’s New World Symphony! Listen to this stellar concert broadcast on Sunday, November 1st at 1 PM on WRTI 90.1 and Monday, November 2nd on WRTI HD-2.
