CologneKölner Stadt-Anzeiger — May 22, 2015“As far as Rachmaninoff’s Third Symphony is concerned – with which the Philadelphia Orchestra was once described as the best orchestra in the world – the ensemble is its apostle on earth, so to speak” Philadelphia Inquirer — May 23, 2015
The Orchestra left Vienna in the morning for the quick two-hour flight to Amsterdam and the next stop on the tour. French horn player Shelley Showers takes a quick snapshot upon arriving at Schiphol Airport. Photo by Jan Regan.
It’s been quite warm in Vienna but that hasn’t stopped musicians from enjoying the city in the few hours they had before the evening’s concert. Cellist Robert Cafaro and his wife, Teresa, rented bikes and enjoyed the many bike lanes found through the city. Here they’re discovered at the inner courtyard of the Hofburg, the imperial palace complex. Photo by Jan Regan.
The Philadelphia Orchestra’s June 4 concert in Amsterdam at the Royal Concertgebouw will be broadcast live on Radio 4 across the Netherlands. The performance, with Yannick conducting, will be Nico Muhly’s Mixed Messages, a Philadelphia Orchestra commission given its world premiere last month in Philadelphia; Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 with Lisa Batiashvili; and Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No.
The tour party left Paris in the morning for the two-hour flight to Vienna, where the Orchestra gives two concerts at the Musikverein. In every city on the tour the Orchestra’s stage personnel work with local crews to efficiently and safely load in (and load out) all the Orchestra’s trunks and other equipment. Photo by Jan Regan.
A rainy day did not discourage Orchestra members from enjoying a free day in Paris on their day off. Some made plans for a trip to Giverny and the gardens that so inspired Impressionist Claude Monet. Some had planned far ahead and purchased tickets to the French Open, which offered exciting play despite a rain delay. Others enjoyed cafés or special dinners with colleagues and friends they know who live here. For one group of musicians, it was an early morning and a 13.1 mile run in the Paris Saint- Germain-en-Laye Half Marathon.
