Carnegie Hall Live: West-Eastern Divan Orchestra

Airs Tuesday, February 5 at 11:00 a.m. As one of its members aptly puts it, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra is "a human laboratory that can express to the whole world how to cope with each other." Established in 1999 as a workshop for young musicians from Israel, Palestine, and other Arab countries, the group is celebrated for its interpretations of Beethoven, which exude "youthful gusto and enthusiasm" (The Independent, London). On this program, they perform Beethoven's symphonies nos. 2 and 9.

Carnegie Hall Live: Belcea Quartet

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.
