Program Notes

Musical America named Hilary Hahn its 2023 Artist of the Year today—and you can hear this extraordinary violinist with Your Philadelphia Orchestra this weekend! Hear why the magazine calls Hahn “one of the world’s most adroit interpreters” as the GRAMMY®-winning artist performs one of the instrument’s greatest works, Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous Violin Concerto, led by conductor William Eddins.

The Philadelphia Inquirer raves about this weekend’s concerts with conductor William Eddins, “who led a La Mer of astonishing detail and power. The gathering winds and sea built upon each other, at the end of the piece, with such enveloping beauty and inevitability, that the eyes welled up with something more significant than sea mist. Artistic triumphs can do that.”

The son of a Navy man, Claude Debussy confided to a friend that he was once intended “for the noble career of a sailor" and only deviated from that path thanks to the quirks of fate. Debussy explores a “sincere devotion to the sea” in his wondrous La Mer. Opening the program, the innovative American composer Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson’s Sinfonietta No. 1.
