Here's an evening's worth of very Viennese music from the Philadelphia Orchestra.
The 20-year-old pianist Jan Lisiecki recently made his debut with the symphony, playing a sensitive rendition of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 in G.
The concert, conducted by music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, also featured music by Johann Strauss, Jr., and HK Gruber.
