The Big Five II: The New York Philharmonic - Part 2
We continue to look at the unique history of the New York Philharmonic. Just think about the audiences who were there before you: from Walt Whitman's “silent sea of faces and the unbared heads” listening to the funeral march from Beethoven’s 3rd Symphony as Abraham Lincoln lay in state at City Hall, to the orchestra’s televised tribute to JFK led by Leonard Bernstein, and later still, the premiere of the John Adams’ On the Transmigration of Souls, commissioned by the Philharmonic to remember the victims of September 11, 2001. In celebration and in mourning, the New York Philharmonic has been there. Playlist information at exploringmusic.wfmt.com.

Nadia Boulanger
Virgil Thomson once said, “In every town in the United States you find a five-and-dime and a Boulanger student," and he wasn't far off. Nadia Boulanger taught and influenced an entire generation of musicians, from Aaron Copland and Astor Piazzolla to Philip Glass and Quincy Jones. This week we'll hear some of her own compositions, works by her talented sister, Lily, and performances of works by prolific students. Bill features Nadia conducting her close friend Igor Stravinsky’s composition Dumbarton Oaks and ends this retrospective listening to Piazzolla’s Oblivion.
