PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Itzhak Perlman returns to Philadelphia to perform with The Philadelphia Orchestra in Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center from November 21st through the 24th.
Listen to the podcast below…
Vice President for Artistic Planning Jeremy Rothman says Perlman will be pulling double duty in this program.
“This is a unique presentation that audiences will get a chance to see him conduct and perform with the orchestra,” Rothman explains.
He will perform Beethoven’s Two Romances for violin and orchestra as a soloist, “but also he’s going to be conducting Dvorak’s Serenade for Strings, and this features the great string sound of The Philadelphia Orchestra. The program also includes a work by Beethoven’s Second Symphony, and that’s paired with Brahms Academic Festival Overture.”
