In this concert, recorded in 2002 at Verizon Hall, Mork will play the Schumann Cello Concerto in A minor. Also on the program, the Manfred Overture, and the Symphony No. 4 – all Schumann, and conducted by Maestro Sawallisch in memorable performances just a few years before his last appearance with the Philadelphians.

During intermission, Susan Lewis speaks with a number of Philadelphia Orchestra musicians; their memories of performing with Maestro Sawallisch are very touching.
