Maestro Frühbeck de Burgos' Final Performance with The Philadelphians: August 3, 1 PM on WRTI
This Sunday at 1 pm, it's a re-broadcast of an October, 2013 concert. Spanish conductor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos concluded his two-week Philadelphia Orchestra residency with a French afternoon of exotic, colorful music - Ravel’s Second Suite from his ballet Daphnis and Chloé, Debussy’s colorful images of a musical seascape in his most-famous work, La Mer, and showcasing German violinist Augustin Hadelich, making his Philadelphia Orchestra debut in Lalo’s exuberant Symphonie espagnole.
This was to be the late Maestro's final performance with the Orchestra he loved, and his death in June makes this concert all the more poignant. Read the Orchestra's blog post about the loss of the great conductor.
During intermission, you'll hear Susan Lewis' interviews with Maestro Frühbeck and Principal Flute Jeffrey Khaner, and Jim Cotter's conversation backstage with Mr. Hadelich.
That's Sunday, August 3 from 1 to 3 pm. Don't miss it! Gregg Whiteside is producer and host.
