At 1 p.m. Sunday on WRTI-FM (90.1), Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts the Philadelphia Orchestra in a recorded program from January 2013 featuring two composers who were not only contemporaries, but who actually met during the premiere of Tristan und Isolde in 1865 - Richard Wagner and Anton Bruckner.

Wagner's tender Siegfried Idyll, a gift to his beloved Cosima on her 33d birthday, is paired with Bruckner's towering Symphony No. 7, which gave Bruckner the greatest popular and critical success of his lifetime.
