“The reception was not that of an audience merely glad that it had a competent conductor, but wildly enthusiastic because it had discovered a genius.” (Musical America). This was the response to Stokowski’s first concert in Philadelphia on October 11, 1912. One hundred years later, Yannick conducts repertoire from that historic opening concert.
