Yannick Nézet-Séguin - Conductor
Paul Jacobs - Organ
Emanuel Ax - Piano

Oquin - Resilience, for organ and orchestra
Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat major, K. 595
Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 36

An enduring musical partnership and a tour-de-force showcase of the Orchestra's brilliance: These concerts are the consummate kickoff for the season's subscription concerts! Emanuel Ax (“We are totally captured by his intensity and pianistic achievement”—Los Angeles Times) returns to Verizon Hall to join the Fabulous Philadelphians in Mozart's final piano concerto. Yannick and the Philadelphians explore the passion and tragedy of Dvorák's Othello Overture, with Tchaikovsky's fiery Fourth Symphony a fitting finale. 

These concerts are part of the Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ Experience, supported through a generous grant from the Wyncote Foundation.
