Philadelphia's Carnegie Triumph, at 7 PM

The players stomped their feet to applaud the conductor, Yannick Nézet-Séguin - that's how great the Philadelphia Orchestra's recent Carnegie Hall concert was.  Hear it for yourself tonight at 7 on SymphonyCast. The New York Times said, "The ensemble, famous for its glowing strings and homogeneous richness, has never sounded better." On the program are Ravel's La Valse, Szymanowski's Violin Concerto (Leonid Kogan is the soloist), and Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony.
