LUCERNE, Switzerland - This is one Philadelphia Orchestra tour that nobody - not the rank-and-file musicians, not the guest soloists, and certainly not the festivals presenting them - is taking for granted, particularly in this picture-postcard city inhabited by the musical gods. The long-planned 13-concert sweep through Europe's most prestigious festivals begins Thursday with the Grafenegg Music Festival outside Vienna, Austria, and ends Sept. 9 in Paris. While the tour was never said to have been in significant danger, everything has been open to question since the orchestra filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April.

SAN ANTONIO - Ben Curtis won on the Texas Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title since 2006, holding off Matt Every and John Huh in a tense back-nine finish for a 2-stroke victory. Curtis birdied the par-5 18th for an even-par 72 and 9-under total. It was a redeeming and emotional win for the 2003 British Open winner who had only limited tour status after a long slump. After the round, Curtis fought back tears while saying: "It's been a tough couple of years. " Every had a 71 and lost a chance at his first tour win with four blown putts.

Tiger Woods will consider the possibility of joining the European Tour after changes are made to membership qualification. The European Tour is expected to announce soon that participation in the Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup, and Seve Trophy will count toward the 13 events needed for tour membership. Woods said he last looked into joining the European Tour in 2000, when the requirement was 11 events. Woods would be only two or three events short of the 13 if the list includes the Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup, four majors, four World Golf Championship events, and appearances in either Abu Dhabi or Dubai.

The Philadelphia Orchestra last toured Europe in 2011 in deeply uncertain circumstances: The orchestra was still in bankruptcy and entering contract negotiations amid fears about the future. Yannick Nézet-Séguin had been appointed, but would not become music director until the next year. The orchestra was led by chief conductor Charles Dutoit. In contrast, the 2015 Tour of Europe, announced Tuesday, promises to be a consolidation of more successful times for the Philadelphia Orchestra, and under the leadership of Nézet-Séguin, already a well-known figure there.

Sharon Van Etten's surpassingly pretty songs are so all-in emotionally, so completely committed in their epic sweep, it can be tiring just to read their names: "Afraid of Nothing" . . . "I Love You But I'm Lost" . . . "Your Love Is Killing Me. " So imagine what it must be like for Van Etten, who plays Union Transfer on Wednesday with her band in support of her new album, Are We There , to sing them every night. "My songs are cathartic, and they can be exhausting, for sure," says the 30-year-old singer, talking on the phone from her apartment in Manhattan this week.

While so many top high school juniors are trying to impress college recruiters, Lenape's Courtney Norton has known her destination for some time. A trend in college athletics is to attempt to get oral commitments from recruits as early as possible. Norton thought Rutgers was a great fit, so in August she told the Scarlet Knights soccer program that she would be coming - in the fall of 2014. With the pressure of having to make a decision long gone, Norton has worked on her game, playing at an extremely high level.

Wolfgang Sawallisch, 89, the German maestro who defied expectations by taking the helm of the Philadelphia Orchestra at age 70 and remaking it into perhaps the most assured blend of orchestral polish and power in the United States, died Friday evening at home in Grassau outside Munich, according to a statement from the Bavarian State Opera. He had been stricken in recent years by a number of diseases and conditions. Mr. Sawallisch, only the orchestra's sixth music director in a century, succeeded the dashing, controversial Riccardo Muti in 1993.

WINNING ON the PGA Tour is what Tommy Gainey dreamed about when he held a job wrapping insulation around hot water tanks, when he was playing more mini-tours than he can remember, when he was taking part in a Golf Channel reality series where he was best known as the guy wearing two gloves. "Two Gloves" never imagined his first win would unfold the way it did Sunday at Sea Island Golf Club in St. Simons Island, Ga. Seven shots behind going into the final round of the McGladrey Classic, Gainey came within one putt of a 59, and then had to wait more than 2 hours as David Toms, Jim Furyk and tournament host Davis Love III - who have combined for 49 wins, three majors and 17 Ryder Cup teams - tried to catch him. None of them could.
