Sunday at 1 p.m., WRTI-FM (90.1) presents a Philadelphia Orchestra concert from May, with Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the Verizon Hall podium to conduct Barber's Adagio for Strings, an ethereal meditation that has become an iconic piece of 20th-century American music; Bartok's First Violin Concerto, played by Lisa Batiashvili, one of the world's most sought-after violinists; and that imposing orchestral cathedral of sound, Bruckner's Symphony No. 9 - his last work, left unfinished, which he dedicated to "Almighty God!"
