The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia on WRTI: An All-Beethoven Concert, Nov. 15 at 5 PM

Pianist Hanchien Lee

In this all-Beethoven program, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia Music Director Dirk Brossé guides you through two works by classical music’s master. Both were written within the decade Beethoven became increasingly aware that his deafness was incurable. Guest soloist Hanchien Lee, who made her Philadelphia Orchestra debut at age 16, infuses the “Emperor” Piano Concerto with her trademark eloquence and virtuosity.

Join host Dave Conant for this exciting broadcast, recorded this past Monday at the Kimmel Center. That's Sunday, November 15, 5 to 6 pm on WRTI. Read Peter Dobrin's review on Philly.com.
