The august Philadelphia Orchestra returns with new music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin for the highly anticipated D.C. performance of the "Yannick Era." "Based on his inaugural concert with the orchestra, it appears that he may rival his great predecessors--Stokowski, Ormandy, Muti, Sawallisch, Eschenbach, and Dutoit--in the intelligence, conviction, and panache he brings to the podium" (Broad Street Review, Philadelphia).

Performance Timing:  Part One - 31 min.; Intermission - 18 min.; Part Two - 67 min.
