As noted in the previous two posts, last fall's Brahms mini-fest included performances of his two piano concertos and four symphonies. The concertos and symphonies 2 and 4 were programmed for Fridays and Saturdays, while the concertos and symphonies 1 and 3 were on the bill for Tuesdays and Thursdays. So the odd-numbered symphonies didn't make it to the Saturday concerts. But WCRB recorded them in performance and broadcast them on March 4 of this year, when the orchestra was away on tour. This week, those recordings will be the "encore broadcast" while we wait for the Tanglewood season to begin. Of course, I posted about it at the time.
Here's a link to the page which gives the programs of all this spring's encore broadcasts; and here's one for WCRB's home page, where you have the button to listen live to the webstream at 8:00 p.m. on June 17 if you can't, or don't want to, listen via radio at 99.5 FM in the Boston area.
Enjoy, Brahms lovers!
