BSO — Hiatus Broadcasts/Webstreams 2013/03/09-10,17

The BSO went to New York to perform in Carnegie Hall, so there is no concert in Boston this week. To fill the broadcast (and webcast) schedule, Classical New England has selected one performance from decades ago and one more recent, as well as keeping to their customary time for rebroadcasts.

Here, from their Boston Symphony page, are the descriptions of what they will be broadcasting and streaming this evening and on the next two Sundays.
First, at 7:00 p.m., (and again on March 17) they note the recent passing of Van Cliburn
Special Broadcast: Van Cliburn's BSO Debut
Van CliburnIn honor of the passing of pianist Van Cliburn, Classical New England and the Boston Symphony Orchestra bring you the legendary pianist's BSO debut performance, featuring the Piano Concerto in A minor by Robert Schumann and Sergei Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3. Charles Munch conducts the BSO at Symphony Hall on Oct. 5, 1958.

Tune in and stream live, Saturday, Mar. 9, at 7pm, and Sunday, Mar. 17, at 1pm.

(please note: this concert will not be available for on-demand streaming)
And then, at 9:00, a rebroadcast/stream of the concert of November 17, 2012

Soprano Dawn UpshawSoprano Dawn Upshaw is the soloist in Sibelius's Luonnotar, conducted by Thomas Adés, who also leads his own In Seven Daysand Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 1, both with piano soloist Kirill Gerstein, and Sibelius's Symphony No. 6.

Sunday, March 10, we will get the normal rebroadcast/webstream of last week's concert.
Pianist Lang Lang is the soloist in Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2, and Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos conducts two BSO signature works: Hindemith's Konzertmusik for Strings and Brass, commissioned by the BSO and premiered in 1931, and Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra, commissioned by Serge Koussevitzky and premiered by the BSO in 1944.

If you go to the CNE/BSO page I've linked, there are further links to interviews with some of the performers and conductors. Happy listening.
