Alan Gilbert, Music Director Alan Gilbert, Music Director (Hayley Sparks)

In the wake of the Christmas weekend blizzard, the Philharmonic's rehearsal schedule was curtailed as some musicians were stuck out of town. A program that was to feature new and recent works by Christopher Rouse and Aaron Jay Kernis was refashioned to include more familiar fare. All the same, the replacement program offered much to savor, as this week's broadcast of that concert demonstrates.

On tap is Vivaldi’s Concerto in B minor for Four Violins, featuring Philharmonic soloists, Ravel’s Boléro, Debussy's Prelude to The Afternoon of a Faun, a pair of Tchaikovsky favorites, and Sibelius's Valse triste.

Program details:

Tchaikovsky: Polonaise from Eugene Onegin

Sibelius: Valse triste

Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker selections

Vivaldi: Concerto for Four Violins, Op. 3, No. 10

Debussy: Prelude to The Afternoon of a Faun

Ravel: Boléro
