The Philadelphia Orchestra in partnership with WHYY Public Media proudly present Branford Marsalis Plays Villa-Lobos.

New Orleans-born Branford Marsalis is an award-winning saxophonist, band leader, featured classical soloist, and a film and Broadway composer who has also toured with Sting and the Grateful Dead. Marsalis recently composed music for and scored the upcoming Netflix film Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. He joins the Orchestra, led by Conducting Fellow Lina Gonzalez-Granados, for Glazunov’s Saxophone Concerto and Villa-Lobos’s Fantasia, which features improvisational-sounding phrases, syncopation, and virtuosic technique.
