Tonight, Evening Music brings you inside Carnegie Hall as we listen to the opening night gala performance, and celebrate the 119th season of this famed New York venue. This also marks the final week before WQXR joins forces with WNYC as a non-commercial radio station on October 8th. Hosted by WQXR's Jeff Spurgeon, tonight's featured ensemble is the Boston Symphony Orchestra, performing works of Beethoven and Debussy. Two soloists, pianist Evgeny Kissin and harpist Ann Hobson Pilot also take the stage, for Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2 and a New York premiere of John Williams's On Willows and Birches for harp and orchestra. The performance also features Daniele Gatti, who will be stepping in for James Levine on the podium.

An "ancient" fan of WQXR - enjoying another broadcast from NY, having just listened to tonight's Boston Symphony Orchestra concert and the Chopin Second.
What a treat, especially to those of us who find FM sources of good classical music fewer than ever.
Having announced live performances and recorded music many years ago on our local FM station, I can truly appreciate what a treasure WQXR is to the NY city/ community and to those of us who listen via the web.
Good luck with the new "partnership" and may good sounds continue to stream forth!
