Tugan Sokhiev

One popular work in the orchestral repertoire was written by a Russian composer and then orchestrated decades later by a Frenchman. As WRTI's Susan Lewis reports, this version had its first performance in October, 1922 in Paris. The music describes a stroll through the gallery - a promenade - with ten specific images brought to life.

This Sunday at 1 pm it's the third and final week of the Philadelphia Orchestra’s January Tchaikovsky Celebration on WRTI. The young Russian conductor Tugan Sokhiev will be on the podium for his Philadelphia Orchestra debut, leading the Philadelphians in works by Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky-Ravel, and Rimsky-Korsakov.
