The Philadelphia Orchestra at Carnegie Hall: Re-Broadcast of Live Concert, January 20th at 2 pm

Jessica Griffin

What a treat! Tune in today to hear a performance described as "phenomenal" by The New York Times.  It's a re-broadcast of The Philadelphia Orchestra's recent concert at Carnegie Hall, recorded live on Jan. 17th. Today from 2 to 5 pm.

Yannick Nezet-Seguin, in his first year as music director, leads The Philadelphians in Ravel's La valse and Shostakovich's intense, politically charged Symphony No. 5. Leonidas Kavakos, arguably "the most deeply satisfying violinist performing today" (The Philadelphia Inquirer), joins them for Szymanowski's Violin Concerto No. 2, infused with euphoric sounds from the composer's native Poland.  Sunday, January 20th, 2 to 5 pm.
