HJ Lim, Beethoven & The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia on WRTI
Dirk Brossé conducts the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia in the Orchestra's monthly "Applause" broadcast. The program is made up of two works - the spirited Piano Concerto No. 1 of Felix Mendelssohn, and Beethoven's Symphony No. 4.
The orchestra will be joined by pianist HJ Lim, who gained fame in 2010 after performing the complete Beethoven piano sonatas over eight consecutive days in Paris, and created a sensation in the classical music world. One year later, she recorded the complete cycle for EMI Classics becoming (at the age of 24) the youngest pianist ever to record the Beethoven complete sonatas. Hear this concert by the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Sunday, October 20, 5 to 6 pm on WRTI.
