More About the Program
Experience Your Philadelphia Orchestra’s performance at Musikfest Berlin, recorded on September 1, 2022.
Imagine being put right in the middle of a crowd at a lively carnival in Europe. Antonín Dvořák tried to capture the jubilation of the participants dancing, eating food, and singing.
Violin virtuoso Lisa Batiashvili stars with the Orchestra in Szymanowski’s extraordinarily lyrical Violin Concerto No. 1. She calls it, simply, “the most delicious thing in the world.”
In 1933, Florence Price’s Symphony No. 1 was the first symphonic work by a Black woman to be played by a major American orchestra. Steeped in American folk music, spirituals, and church hymns, this celebrated work reflects her experience as a Black woman raised in the post-Civil War South.
