Philadelphia Orchestra Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin speaks backstage with WRTI's Susan Lewis.
Join us on Sunday, March 21 from 1 to 4 PM on WRTI 90.1 and Monday, March 22 from 7 to 10 PM on WRTI HD-2 as we go back in time to late 2017 to hear a concert recorded live in Verizon Hall. The Philadelphia Orchestra performs Joseph Haydn's The Seasons—a vast canvas of an oratorio that begins with the turn from winter to spring, and progresses through summer, autumn, and winter.
At a time when renewal of hope is so important, WRTI is proud to rebroadcast the transcendent "Resurrection" Symphony of Gustav Mahler on Sunday, January 17th at 1 PM on WRTI, and Monday, January 18th at 7 PM on WRTI HD-2.
This was an unforgettable performance of two works that were crucial in the development of Yannick Nézet-Séguin as a young conductor. On Sunday, January 10th at 1 PM on WRTI and Monday, January 11th at 7 PM on WRTI HD-2, we're rebroadcasting this concert from March, 2011.
Three years after the great success of his 1798 work The Creation, Joseph Haydn premiered another large oratorio, this time celebrating nature throughout the year. While not often performed today, The Seasons is still a tour de force with an enthusiastic following. WRTI’s Susan Lewis has more.
WRTI's Susan Lewis speaks with Joe Miller, director of choral activities at Westminster Choir College.
