It's All Mozart on Sunday's Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert Broadcast on WRTI!

Join us this Sunday, October 19th at 1 pm to hear the first concert from last April's Philadelphia Orchestra Mozart Celebration, which brings us three Mozart masterpieces! With Yannick on the podium, the Orchestra will play an overture to one of Mozart's three operas set to a libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte, Cosi fan Tutte, and then continue with the Piano Concerto No. 22, played by the brilliant young pianist Jan Lisiecki, and conclude with the first of Mozart’s miraculous final three symphonies, the 39th.

In the space of just six weeks during the summer of 1788, Mozart wrote all of those final three symphonies; they mark the summit of his symphonic achievement.

Listen to this re-broadcast on Sunday, October 19, from 1 until 3 pm on WRTI 90.1 FM or online at wrti.org. Gregg Whiteside is producer and host. This broadcast series is underwritten by Bryn Mawr Trust Wealth Management.
