The Concert of the Year

Posted at 8:59 AM on July 29, 2011 by Rex Levang

When the Oregon Symphony performed at Carnegie Hall last spring, Alex Ross of the New Yorker said it was the most remarkable concert of the regular season--no small accolade, in view of the abundance of New York's classical scene.

The program ("Music for a Time of War") linked pieces by Ives, Adams, Britten and Vaughan Williams. If you didn't hear our live broadcast in May--or even if--you can listen online here. Or tune in to SymphonyCast this Sunday at 1 pm.
