The Boston Symphony Orchestra is not performing in Symphony Hall this week, and in the three following weeks they are presenting five different programs. This means that there will be a fair amount of juggling by WCRB/Classical New England. They'll have to do a rebroadcast tonight, and they'll do a mix of live and rebroadcasts for the next five concerts. You can read all about it on their BSO page. I'll try to summarize it here:
March 1 The concert of January 31-February 5, 2013: Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky (BSO performance detail page no longer available)
March 3 The concert of February 22, 2014 (the usual rebroadcast time): Dvořák and Beethoven
March 8 The concert of two days earlier, March 6, 2014: Strauss
March 10 The Tanglewood Concert of August 11, 2013: Beethoven (BSO performance detail page no longer available)
March 15 Live Beethoven (with usual rebroadcast March 24)
March 17 The concert of March 6 (= broadcast of March 8) — usual time
March 22 Live Beethoven (with usual rebroadcast March 31)
This means one of the next five Symphony Hall concerts of the BSO will be recorded and broadcast on the 8th, and those of the 15th and 22nd will be live as usual; but the concerts of March 8 (Mozart) and March 13-14 (Beethoven) will be recorded for broadcast sometime later (perhaps between Symphony Hall and Tanglewood seasons).
As usual, the broadcasts/webstreams all begin at 8:00 p.m., Boston Time. Daylight Saving Time (Summer Time) begins here on March 9.
It's time to celebrate!!!
