2:00 pm Verizon Hall

The Orchestra continues its two-year cycle of Beethoven symphonies with the composer’s Sixth (the “Pastoral”). Hard to believe, but this ode to the joys of walking in the Austrian countryside was actually composed (and premiered) at the same time as the much more assertive Fifth Symphony (heard on subscription in January). The great Spanish composer Manuel de Falla takes us to a different landscape in the second half of the concert, with his Nights in the Gardens of Spain, a nocturne for piano and orchestra, and The Three-Cornered Hat, both of which make enchanting use of traditional Andalusian folk music. The vibrant and passionate pianist Jorge Federico Osorio makes his Philadelphia Orchestra debut.
