Philadelphia Maestros tells the tale of this marvelous orchestra through the tenures of three conductors: Eugene Ormandy, Riccardo Muti, and Wolfgang Sawallisch. With their singular approaches to sound and public image, all three maestros left an indelible mark on the Orchestra, and the cultural life of the city of Philadelphia. A lifelong fan and scholar of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Phyllis White Rodriguez-Peralta paints intimate portraits of the conductors using archival material and interviews with musicians, including pianists Gary Graffman and Lang Lang, and violinist Sarah Chang.

Rodriguez-Peraltas text captivates as she recounts Eugene Ormandys performance as a last-minute substitute for guest conductor Arturo Toscanini- Riccardo Mutis magnetic presence and international fame- and the role of Wolfgang Sawallisch in moving the Orchestra to its grand new hall at the Kimmel Center.

Engaging and entertaining, Philadelphia Maestros will be a welcome addition to any aficionados bookshelf.
