Daniil Trifonov

Join us on Sunday, July 10th from 1 to 3 pm for a re-broadcast of The Philadelphia Orchestra's first concert of the 2015/2016 season. If you coudn't make it to Verizon Hall back in the fall of last year, listen to Yannick Nézet-Séguin lead the Philadelphians in works by Rachmaninoff, Ravel, and Rimsky-Korsakov with pianist Daniil Trifonov on WRTI.

Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 4 is not very well known in America. But it has a strong connection with The Philadelphia Orchestra, which continues to mine the richness of the work. WRTI’s Susan Lewis has more.


The recording industry gives out the GRAMMY Awards, and WRTI’s Kile Smith looks at the classical categories, which include some local names.
