Smetana: The Moldau Midkiff: From the Blue Ridge Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 (Pastorale)
Airs Thursday, November 8 at 11:00 a.m. Hurricane Sandy and a dangerously broken construction crane dangling over West 57th Street in Manhattan closed Carnegie Hall for several days. But America’s most famous stage re-opens with a live concert featuring the phenomenal Belcea Quartet. Join us for this broadcast of Carnegie Hall Live with the Belcea Quartet, a group that approaches everything it plays with "timeless daring" (The New York Times). The quartet continues its three-concert focus on Beethoven's epoch-making late quartets. This program features Beethoven's E-flat–Major Quartet, Op. 127, the first of the five final quartets that changed the string quartet genre forever. Then we'll hear the Beethoven B-flat–Major Quartet, Op 130. Fred Child and Jeff Spurgeon will host.
Airs Saturday, October 27 at 12:00 noon. Red River Radio is pleased to bring back the Cleveland Orchestra for another superb season of broadcast concerts from the orchestra's home at Severance Hall in Cleveland and from concerts performed around the country and the world. On this week's concert we'll hear conductor Christoph von Dohnanyi who will be joined by soprano Megan Miller, mezzo-soprano Tamara Mumford, tenor Eric Cutler, and bass Iain Paterson along with the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus in Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in d, Op. 125 “Choral.” The concert opens with Ligeti's Atmospheres followed by Wagner's Prelude to Act I of Lohengrin.
