BSO webcasst!


Boston Symphony Concerts Now Available in Streaming Audio Over Internet   By Vivien Schweitzer   February 6, 2007

Fans of the Boston Symphony Orchestra who don’t live close enough to “The Hub” to get to Symphony Hall — and Boston residents who don’t want to brave the cold — can now hear BSO concerts live over the Web.

All this season’s remaining BSO programs — including this week’s Berlioz Damnation de Faust with Paul Groves, Yvonne Naef and José van Dam, next week’s world premiere of Charles Wuorinen’s symphony Theologoumena, the following week’s premiere of Kaija Saariaho’s Notes on Light (February 22-27), and Beethoven’s Fidelio with Karita Mattila as Leonore (March 23-27) — will be available through live streaming audio at and, the websites of Boston’s two major classical radio stations.

WGBH 89.7 FM has been broadcasting and streaming live all BSO Friday afternoon concerts since October; WCRB 99.5 FM has been doing the same with the orchestra’s Saturday night performances since November. (The concerts are available online only as live audio streams of the radio stations’ broadcasts; they are not currently archived for on-demand listening.)
