Yannick, Bruckner, & Wagner: The Philadelphia Orchestra on WRTI this Sunday at 1 PM

This Sunday at 1 pm on WRTI, it's a performance of Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 7  by The Philadelphia Orchestra. The work, and the composer, are very close to Yannick's musical heart.

Paired with Wagner's tender Siegfried Idyll, you're in for an orchestral treat, in this rebroadcast of a Verizon Hall concert first heard last January, and broadcast a week after the death of the Orchestra's Conductor Laureate Wolfgang Sawallisch.

At Intermission, WRTI's Susan Lewis went backstage to speak with many of the Orchestra's musicians about their late maestro. This Sunday we'll have an opportunity to hear that feature again. Gregg Whiteside is host and producer.

Be sure to join us for this concert rebroadcast, Sunday, November 3, 1 to 3 pm.
