Listen to Susan Lewis' interview with conductor Vladimir Jurowski.
Guest Conductor Vladimir Jurowski, a familiar presence on the podium here in Philadelphia, returned for a visit to Verizon Hall in late October, 2014, for a concert we'll hear re-broadcast this Sunday at 1 pm on WRTI. The concert continued three programming themes heard throughout this past season:
London-based, period-instrument ensemble Arcangelo presents a program of works by J. S. Bach and J. C. Bach, as well as Handel’s mythological tale of unrequited love, Apollo e Dafne, one of his most ambitious cantatas that set the stage for the brilliant operatic career that followed in the next 30 years of his life. Russian violinist Alina Ibragimova is the soloist in Bach's Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in A minor.
Arcangelo was founded in 2010 by the English conductor Jonathan Cohen. It has since recorded several albums and has appeared at various venues and early-music festivals throughout the UK and Europe. This program is a broadcast of their concert this past Monday at Carnegie Hall. Hear the live, recorded concert on Sunday, November 24 at 4 pm.
