On Saturday, December 4 at 8 pm, WQXR brings you a live broadcast of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra from Carnegie Hall. The program features the soprano Kate Royal and a new spin on the three B's: Barber, Britten and Beethoven -- the latter through his Symphony No. 7 in A major. The London-based Royal joins the orchestra for Benjamin Britten's Les Illuminations, a song cycle based on nine poems by French poet Arthur Rimbaud that reflect the composer's spirit of adventure.
WQXR's David Garland and Jeff Spurgeon co-host the broadcast.
