The Philadelphia Orchestra – Yannick Nezet-Sequin, conductor; Paul Jacobs, organ; Emanuel Ax, piano. October 6, 2017.

Ax and Nezet-Sequin after performance of the Mozart concerto.
Anne also thought we had heard this orchestra before, decades ago, when they were still in their old home (they moved to the current location in 2001.) I vaguely remembered they would start a concert with the National Anthem, which they did again today. Philadelphia and Boston must be constant vying to lay claim to where America started.

The ushers were very strict about the "no photos" policy, even though it wasn't plainly stated in the program. This out-of-focus shot of Wang and van Zweden leaving was the only photo I took after the Tchaikovsky concerto.
A full orchestra was used for the Rite of Spring performance. Notice the two sets of timpanis.
