The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert on WRTI: Bruckner, Barber, Bartok, Batiashvili
Join us Sunday, Feb. 7th at 1 PM on WRTI 90.1, and Monday, Feb. 8th at 7 PM on WRTI HD-2 to hear this stunning Philadelphia Orchestra concert broadcast from 2014, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin. On the program is Barber’s Adagio for Strings, an ethereal meditation that has emerged as an iconic piece of 20th-century American music; Bartok’s First Violin Concerto, played by Lisa Batiashvili, one of the world’s most sought-after violinists; and that imposing orchestral cathedral of sound known as Bruckner’s Symphony No. 9, Bruckner’s last work, left unfinished, which he dedicated to "Almighty God."
