The Philadelphia Orchestra Plays Tchaikovsky and Liadov on WRTI: March 2 at 1 PM
This Sunday, March 2 at 1 PM, WRTI broadcasts a Philadelphia Orchestra concert from January that was part of the first week of a three-week celebration of works by Tchaikovsky and his contemporaries.
British conductor Robin Ticciati returns to Philadelphia after a highly acclaimed debut in 2012. The young maestro launches the celebration with a performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, taking us on an emotional journey toward an exhilarating affirmation of life’s joys.
The program opens with Anatol Liadov’s short tone poem, The Enchanted Lake, employing a combination of Russian folk tunes and impressionist colors in this charming work inspired by an isolated lake outside St. Petersburg.
Renowned British pianist Stephen Hough performs the highly demanding Piano Concerto No. 1 of Tchaikovsky. He talks to WRTI's Susan Lewis about playing Tchaikovsky in this post.
Not to be missed! That's The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert on WRTI, this Sunday, from 1 until 3 pm.
Gregg Whiteside is producer and host.
