This Sunday on WRTI, listen to The Philadelphia Orchestra in a recorded program of music spanning 200 years, as the eminent Spanish conductor Rafael Fruehbeck de Borgos conducts a Stokowski Bach transcription, Philadelphia favorite André Watts performs Beethoven's Emperor Concerto, and Liszt’s Les Preludes gets its first performance by the Philadelphians in 16 years!
We’ll also hear Paul Hindemith’s festive and pleasant Concert Music For Strings and Brass from a concert in early February.
