Join us on CPR Classical for Carnegie Hall Live tonight at 6pm. Yannick Nézet-Séguin, in his first year as music director, leads The Philadelphia Orchestra in Ravel’s La valse and Shostakovich’s intense, Symphony No. 5. Leonidas Kavakos, arguably “the most deeply satisfying violinist performing today” (The Philadelphia Inquirer), joins them for Szymanowski’s Violin Concerto No. 2, infused with euphoric sounds from the composer’s native Poland.
