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