Montrealers will finally meet Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s American family, the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Known for its rich string section, the Philadelphia sound developed through many collaborations with Rachmaninoff, whose grand and epic Symphony No. 2 will be performed at this evening’s concert.
More recently, Florence Price also earned a special place in the hearts of Philadelphia musicians, who have played many of her works.
F. PRICE, Symphony No. 4
RACHMANINOFF, Symphony No. 2
