Beethoven’s First

8:00 PM, Verizon Hall

Philadelphia-born violinist Sarah Chang highlights this concert. A child prodigy, she made her debut with the Orchestra in 1991, when she was just 10 years old. One critic declared: “The ancients would certainly have had Ms. Chang emerging fully formed from some Botticellian scallop shell.” She’ll be performing Dvorák’s Violin Concerto. The Concerto is just one element in a largely Eastern-European-themed concert. We’ll also hear Enescu’s Romanian Rhapsody No. 1, Ligeti’s Romanian Concerto, and Beethoven’s First Symphony.

Yannick Conducts Rachmaninoff

2:00 PM, Verizon Hall

Explore the breadth of The Philadelphia Orchestra’s repertoire, from the treasures of the past to the cutting edge works of the future. Rachmaninoff wrote his Symphony No. 3 for the Philadelphians and their resplendent strings. It had its world premiere performance in 1936 with Leopold Stokowski on the podium and its first recording three years later with the composer conducting. The beloved and expressive work is paired with Shostakovich’s First Violin Concerto, written during the oppressive regime of the Soviet Union when the composer’s work was being denounced.
