New Classical Tracks with Julie Amacher is a Syndicated Feature airing nationally on Classical 24 and Statewide via Minnesota Public Radio. For Wednesday April 10, Rameau: Le Temple de la Gloire - Nicholas McGegan, Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorale (Philharmonia Baroque Productions)

Four years after the San Francisco-based Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra was formed, Nicholas McGegan was hired to be its first music director. 35 years later, he's still finding ways to keep the musicians and the audience on their toes. "We have a whole series of new music written for old instruments, so we have composers who come in and work with us to play music that's fresh off the page, and that keeps our musicians on their toes. It gives them a chance actually to work with live composers, which normally we wouldn't do. Normally we're just good at working with the dead ones."
