In Concert with Sawallisch and The Philadelphia Orchestra in 2005: January 19 at 1 PM on WRTI

Listen to WRTI 90.1 FM at 1 pm on Sunday for a special archival Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast from February 19, 2005. On the podium is the Orchestra’s former Music Director Wolfgang Sawallisch, just 2 weeks before his last appearance with the Philadelphians.

On the program that day were Hindemith’s Concert Music for Strings and Brass, Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D, played brilliantly by the Orchestra's Concertmaster David Kim, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 - all works that were special to the late Maestro.

Philadelphia Orchestra Concertmaster David Kim talks with WRTI's Susan Lewis about the highlight of his career so far, and the magic he felt working with Wolfgang Sawallisch.

During intermission, WRTI's Susan Lewis speaks with members of the Orchestra, as they fondly remember their former music director, who passed away last February, 2013. Gregg Whiteside is producer and host.

Cellist Gloria dePasquale shares memories of Maestro Sawallisch with WRTI's Susan Lewis.

Not to be missed! That’s Sunday, January 19th from 1 to 3 pm on WRTI 90.1 FM and online at
