Four compositions, notable for their unusually imaginative explorations of distinctive sound worlds, are all featured on WRTI's Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast this Sunday, April 26 at 1 pm.
On the podium is guest conductor Robin Ticciati, principal conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, who directs the radiant opening to Wagner's opera Lohengrin, the Prelude to Act I, depicting the gradual unveiling of the Holy Grail, attended by a host of angels.
Join us this Sunday, November 9 at 1 pm for the re-broadcast of a Philadelphia Orchestra concert from last January - part of a three-week celebration of works by Tchaikovsky and his contemporaries.
British conductor Robin Ticciati returns to Philadelphia after a highly acclaimed debut in 2012. The young maestro launches the celebration with a performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, taking us on an emotional journey toward an exhilarating affirmation of life’s joys.
A young British conductor is developing a fruitful relationship with The Philadelphia Orchestra. WRTI's Jim Cotter reports.
Lauded for his diverse range of conducting styles and his unique sense of silence as an expressive tool, Robin Ticciati has achieved much in his 31 years. He founded a chamber ensemble while only 21, and made his La Scala debut at 22 - the youngest conductor ever to stand on the podium of Italy’s greatest opera house.
