Ax Plays Bach, Jurowski Conducts: The Philadelphians In Concert on WRTI, March 30, 1 PM

Russian conductor Vladmir Jurowski

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.

Performing The Majestic Music of J.S. Bach: A Modern Yet Historical Approach

Conductor Vladimir Jurowski leads The Philadelphians in works by J.S. Bach, Mahler, and R. Strauss on WRTI, March 30 at 1 pm.

J.S. Bach’s 329th birthday is Monday, March 31st. In recent years, the iconic composer’s music has been embraced by period performers, and played less frequently by big symphony orchestras. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, The Philadelphia Orchestra takes a very modern - yet historical - approach to his music in WRTI's Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast on Sunday, March 30th at 1 pm.

The broadcast also features Bach’s Piano Concerto No. 1, and music of Strauss and Mahler.
