This week's "encore broadcast" and webstream from WCRB is of a concert that was given on January 16 of this year. It contains music by Debussy, Dutilleux, Canteloube, and Stravinsky. The middle two pieces are sets of songs sung by Renée Fleming. François-Xavier Roth conducts.
I posted about it at the time with my own opinions and links to reviews and the station and the orchestra's information pages — no need to copy it all here: you can go back and look. You can also look at the station's home page, linked above, and their BSO page for further links and information about this and other BSO concerts available via WCRB.
The broadcast and stream begin at 8:00 p.m., Boston Time on Saturday, June 18. I'm planning to listen until my brother makes his weekly phone call from Japan.
