The Philadelphia Orchestra In Concert on WRTI: Dohnanyi Conducts Beethoven and Mozart

Guest conductor Christoph von Dohnanyi conducts The Philadelphia Orchestra this Sunday, April 7th from 2 to 4 pm in a program featuring Witold Lutoslawski's Funeral Music - one of the most accessible works by the 20th-century Polish composer. It will be followed by a performance of Mozart's darkly sublime Piano Concerto No. 20 with pianist Rudolph Buchbinder, who speaks with WRTI's Jim Cotter during intermission. 

The second half of the program offers a work that marked a major turning point in the life of Beethoven, his Symphony No. 3, "Eroica."
