Friday, March 23, 2018
Principal Trumpet David Bilger takes center stage in Christian Lindberg's eclectic, virtuosic Akbank Bunka (“unadulterated jazz with the flirtatious unpredictability of a butterfly”—The Scotsman). Stravinsky's indelible dance music for The Firebird and Prokofiev's fervent Fifth Symphony are also led by the brilliant young Israeli conductor Lahav Shani, just named to be the music director of the Israel Philharmonic. Don't miss this rising star in his Philadelphia Orchestra debut.
