Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall
Stu Rosner / BSO

WCRB and WGBH have a long, rich history of collaboration with the Boston Symphony Orchestra to bring this world-class orchestra's performances to the airwaves and online. A recent contractual change between the BSO and its musician union will result in an adjustment to these broadcasts and streams for the 2017-2018 season.

The highly personalized expressions of Soviet composer Mieczesław Weinberg are one of the most compelling parts of the ECM Records catalog, which has just become available across digital platforms.
