Great seats on the orchestra floor now just $65 for this performance.

Favorite guest conductor Vladimir Jurowski returns to lead The Philadelphia Orchestra in two popular works: Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra—seared into the pop culture canon by Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey—and Mozart’s sprightly Violin Concerto No. 4. The young Russian violinist Alina Ibragimova—dubbed “one of the biggest joys of the London concert scene” (Financial Times) and “the most richly talented and expressive of violinists” (The Guardian) makes her Philadelphia Orchestra debut. Jurowski also introduces the music of Julian Anderson, who’s sparkling and colorful The Stations of the Sun was inspired by the changing moods of the sun across the daily sky.
