Philadelphia favorite André Watts returns to Philadelphia, joining forces with the revered Maestro Frühbeck performing Beethoven's grandest piano concerto, the "Emperor." Liszt, a super-star pianist in his own right, also composed brilliant tone poems such as Les Préludes. And Hindemith further stretches the demands of the orchestra in his compelling Concert Music for Strings and Brass. This program also features another charming orchestration by Stokowski of Bach's "Sleepers Awake."
