More Philly Phallout

The relationship between Eschenbach and the Philadelphia Orchestra may have had its bumps, but Peter Burwasser says that it’s a shame the maestro will be departing so soon. “Eschenbach has, on so many levels, fulfilled his commitment splendidly. He has infused the Philadelphia Orchestra with a lively sense of innovation and connection to living music that hearkens back to the storied Stokowski era. More significantly, he has given us a beautiful sounding orchestra.”
