It's back to Tanglewood again for the third week of the December hiatus. This week's rebroadcast is of the final concert of the 2016 Tanglewood Season. The now-traditional performance of Beethoven's 9th Symphony is preceded by the much less familiar "Quiet City" by Aaron Copland. I posted about it last August, but unfortunately, the link to the BSO performance detail page goes to the previous week. Here's the correct link. I don't remember any specifics about the Copland work, but my general recollection is that it was pleasant to listen to. As for the Beethoven: of course it's enormous and amazing.
So by all means, listen if you can this evening at 8:00 p.m., Boston Time, over WCRB; and check out the rest of their website for other interesting items.
