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.
