A collection of discussions between special guests and Music Director and midday host, Julia Figueras.
On Record with Jiji and Carlos Izcaray
The last concert of the 2021-22 season for the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra brings us two favorites and something new: Rodrigo's elegant Concierto de Aranjuez, Tchaikovsky's powerful Symphony No. 4, and Lera Auerbach's Icarus, a piece new to Rochester audiences. Guest conductor Carlos Izcaray and guitarist Jiji's conversation with WXXI Classical Music Director Julia Figueras took flight, as they discussed the works, their influences, and how to have that difficult conversation with a composer.
