The program features some of the most profoundly emotional meditations found in the orchestral repertoire. The performance includes Beethoven's deeply felt "Eroica" Symphony, whose funeral march has rhythmic patterns echoed in Strauss's post-war lament Metamorphosen. Also on the program is Shostakovich's playfully dark and virtuosic Cello Concerto No. 1 with Truls Mørk.

In partnership with Carnegie Hall and WQXR, Carnegie Hall Live is a season of “must-have” classical music events, broadcast live from the nation’s most famous concert hall. The series includes concerts from all three of Carnegie Hall’s iconic stages: Weill Recital Hall, Zankel Hall and Stern Auditorium.

Tune in Friday night, February 28th at 8pm for Carnegie Hall Live with The Philadelphia Orchestra on the Classics & News Service.
