Performing The Majestic Music of J.S. Bach: A Modern Yet Historical Approach

J.S. Bach’s 329th birthday is Monday, March 31st. In recent years, the iconic composer’s music has been embraced by period performers, and played less frequently by big symphony orchestras. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, The Philadelphia Orchestra takes a very modern - yet historical - approach to his music in WRTI's Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast on Sunday, March 30th at 1 pm.

The broadcast also features Bach’s Piano Concerto No. 1, and music of Strauss and Mahler.

Listen to more of Susan Lewis' interview with conductor Vladimir Jurowski.
