The Philadelphia Orchestra - Simon Rattle and Lang Lang
The Orchestra enjoys a historic connection with the great Finnish master Jean Sibelius—Stokowski led the U.S. premieres of his last three symphonies. Rattle conducts the final two, together without interruption. Musical mega-star and Curtis graduate Lang Lang performs Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, a revolutionary work that foreshadowed the Romantic era in music. Plus an energetic work by American composer Andrew Norman.
