Yannick celebrates two great Philadelphia Orchestra premieres--Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini (1934), which became one of the most famous works written in the 20th century, and Jennifer Higdon's Concerto for Orchestra (2002), one of the most successful works of the 21st century. It's Yannick, Jennifer Higdon, and the music of Philadelphia together in a remarkable partnership.
