It's Andre Watts With The Philadelphia Orchestra On WRTI: Sunday at 1 PM

This Sunday afternoon at 1 pm, join us for a rebroadcast of a Verizon Hall concert from this past February, which featured the return to Philadelphia of André Watts, who joins forces with the revered Maestro Raphael Frühbeck de Borgos for a performance of Beethoven's grandest piano concerto, the Fifth - the "Emperor." Also on the program, Hindemith's Concert Music for Strings and Brass, a delicate orchestration by Stokowski of Bach's "Sleepers Awake," and the most popular of Liszt's symphonic poems, Les Preludes.

During intermission, Jim Cotter goes backstage for a talk with André Watts, and Susan Lewis sits and chats with Maestro de Borgos about this interesting and varied program.

A broadcast not to be missed! That's this Sunday, October 20, 1 to 3 pm. Gregg Whiteside is host and producer.
