New York Philharmonic This Week

Airs Thursday at 9 pm on WQXR

The two-hour radio program, which is broadcast and syndicated nationally 52 weeks a year by the WFMT Radio Network, represents virtually the Orchestra’s entire 2013-14 season. It includes interviews with Philharmonic musicians, guest artists, and conductors. The additional 13 weeks of broadcasts, which will air during the summer months, will draw on the Philharmonic’s extensive library of commercial recordings.

The broadcasts are produced and syndicated to 290 outlets nationwide by the WFMT Radio Network.

The New York Philharmonic’s first live national radio broadcast took place on October 5, 1930, over the CBS radio network. On that Sunday, Erich Kleiber was on the podium leading the Orchestra at Carnegie Hall. Since that historic broadcast, the Philharmonic has enjoyed an almost continuous presence on national radio. Advancing its role as a media pioneer, the Philharmonic, since 2002, has shared its radio broadcast with a worldwide audience through its Website, nyphil.org.

The New York Philharmonic This Week is generously underwritten by The Kaplen Foundation, the Audrey Love Charitable Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Philharmonic’s corporate partner, MetLife Foundation.
