Back in January, 2016, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and The Philadelphia Orchestra launched a three-week Music of Vienna series, and one of those concerts—both here in Philadelphia at Verizon Hall and at Carnegie Hall in New York—Yannick conducted two works composed nearly a century apart: Haydn’s 103rd symphony, and Bruckner’s 4th.

The Philadelphia Orchestra is back from its debut in Mongolia, where planned full-orchestra concerts needed to be canceled due to a nation-wide financial crisis. Instead, a contingent of 18 musicians spent two days in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. Now, the Philadelphia Inquirer's David Patrick Stearns asks what this could lead to.

Vienna was a hotbed of musical evolution, and the second concert in the Philadelphia Orchestra’s three-part series of the Music of Vienna shows us how far the symphony traveled in that time. On Sunday, September 4th at 1 pm, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Philadelphians bring you two symphonies composed about 80 years apart: Joseph Haydn’s 103rd, the famous “Drumroll” Symphony, and Anton Bruckner’s 4th.
