This Sunday's Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast on WRTI 90.1 FM, led by Russian conductor Vladimir Jurowski, brings us two works by J.S. Bach, performed at Verizon Hall this past February, that give us a taste of the Baroque equivalents of the symphony and the concerto - the Orchestral Suite No. 2, and the Keyboard Concerto No. 1, more modest in size, but no less ambitious in vision.
On this week's Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast on WRTI, we'll hear one of the music world's most beloved and respected classical musicians perform in two separate works. WRTI's Jim Cotter reports on a pianist who is equally at home in the music of today and of centuries past.
Alan Gilbert conducts, and Emanuel Ax is soloist, for two very different concertos. Ax plays the Concerto in D minor of Johann Sebastian Bach. Then you'll hear the semi-autobiographical piano concerto by Arnold Schoenberg, a work dating from 1942.
Join us on Sunday, July 22, 3 to 5 pm as Music Director Alan Gilbert, pianist Emanuel Ax, and the New York Choral Artists present the final program of the New York Philharmonic's season in Avery Fisher Hall. The concert, recorded last month, is an all-Mozart program featuring the Piano Concerto No. 22, and the Great Mass in c minor.
