The Philadelphia Orchestra – music’s most sensuous sound – was cultivated under Leopold Stokowski, Eugene Ormandy, Riccardo Muti and now Yannick Nézet-Séguin. This dynamic music director has been called “the greatest generator of energy on the international podium” by London’s Financial Times and “a passionate interpreter of burning sincerity” by BBC Music magazine. Experience this sonic force in Schubert’s fiendishly challenging Symphony No. 9, dubbed “The Great” for its majesty. Wunderkind pianist Jan Lisiecki will perform Mendelssohn’s bravura Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor, and rounding out the program will be Haydn’s overture to his opera L’isola disabitata (The Deserted Island).
