The Philadelphia Orchestra's Principal Guest Conductor Designate directs a Beethoven programme
Gramophone’s current Orchestra of the Year, The Philadelphia Orchestra, is unveiling its relationship with its new Principal Guest Conductor in its Digital Stage on Thursday.
The Philadelphia Orchestra emerged from a substantial public vote last year to be named Gramophone’s third Orchestra of the Year (following in the footsteps of the Seattle Symphony and the Hong Kong Philharmonic, and presented in association with Apple Music) at the 2020 Gramophone Classical Music Awards. Its Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin was featured on our January cover and his new DG recording of Rachmaninov’s First Symphony and Symphonic Dances is named our Recording of the Month in the current (February) issue.
On Thursday, and then for a week, you can watch The Philadelphia Orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor Designate, Nathalie Stutzmann (the guest on a recent Gramophone Podcast), direct the orchestra in a Beethoven concert of the First Symphony and the Overture to The Creatures of Prometheus.
The Digital Stage concert begins with a performance premiere, streaming in real time (Thursday 8pm ET; Friday 1am GMT; Friday 2am CET). Following the live performance, the concert will be available for ticket holders to watch on demand for one week.
Tickets cost $17, though you can also purchase a three-concert subscription for $45. Full information on The Philadelphia Orchestra’s website.
