The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia

This Saturday and Sunday, November 19th and 20th, is a Philadelphia weekend like no other on WRTI. Before Thanksgiving is upon us, we’re giving thanks for some of the great Philadelphia ensembles, instrumentalists, singers, and composers all weekend long!

Although their father was an amateur guitarist and composer, Philadelphia Orchestra Principal Clarinet Ricardo Morales and his four brothers and one sister have made music the family business. Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Morales and each of his siblings began their careers there. Now they have multiple connections with the music community in Philadelphia. WRTI’s Susan Lewis talked with several of the brothers.

It’s into the vault this Sunday for a January 30th, 2006 concert recorded in the Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Center, and conducted by then Music Director and current Conductor Laureate Ignat Solzhenitsyn. Join us on Sunday, September 18th from 5 to 6 pm to hear the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia perform Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 9, known as "The Great C Major Symphony," to distinguish it from Schubert's Symphony No. 6  in the same key.

On this month's broadcast, we'll share some M&M's with you...not the chocolate variety, but still quite delicious. Join us on Sunday, July 17th from 5 to 6 pm to hear works by Mozart and Mendelssohn, recorded in concert by The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia in 2013, 2015, and 2016.

In this all-Beethoven program, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia Music Director Dirk Brossé guides you through two works by classical music’s master. Both were written within the decade Beethoven became increasingly aware that his deafness was incurable. Guest soloist Hanchien Lee, who made her Philadelphia Orchestra debut at age 16, infuses the “Emperor” Piano Concerto with her trademark eloquence and virtuosity.

Join us for two orchestral favorites with two conductors on this month's Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia broadcast. Music Director Dirk Brossé leads Tchaikovsky's beloved Serenade for Strings, and Thomas Hong, guest conductor, leads a performance of the spirited Divertimento in D, K. 136, written by a 16-year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Ignat Solzhenitsyn, The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia's conductor laureate, is on the podium for this month's broadcast. Maestro Solzhenitsyn has devised a program with a connection to the idea of freedom that he explains as follows:

It's our monthly visit with The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia this Sunday from 5 to 6 pm. Music Director Dirk Brosse conducts Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture, the Valse Triste of Sibelius, and Schumann's Cello Concerto. Guest soloist is Sara Sant'Ambrogio.
