Tune in this Saturday, June 15th, after the opera, when Mark Pinto will host a special New Releases. He's stretching out and broadcasting for us Mahler's last completed symphony, the Ninth. We can't spill the beans on whose recording it is, but it's gotten raves! You will not be disappointed.
If you have the time to tune in just for this monument of orchestral literature, get to your radio or point your browser to wrti.org by about 4:15 pm.
Celebrated violinist Hilary Hahn returns to Philadelphia to perform Korngold's Violin Concerto. The concerto was dedicated to Alma Mahler, the widow of Korngold's childhood mentor Gustav Mahler. It was premiered on February 15, 1947 by Jascha Heifetz.
