Henri Vieuxtemps

Michael Patrick O’Leary

Welcome 2021 with The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert on Sunday, January 3rd at 1 PM and Monday, January 4th at 7 PM on WRTI HD-2. It's a festive and memorable concert from December, 2015 with Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium conducting a suite from Georges Bizet’s opera Carmen, and Stravinsky’s complete Firebird ballet, with lavish orchestration, including three harps! It’s a rare opportunity to hear the complete score of this revolutionary work.

Does a song, or even a symphony, trigger memories of important moments and milestones in your life? For violinist Hillary Hahn, a little-known, 19th-century concerto is an important part of her history and her current repertoire.
