Returning for its third year, WQXR and Carnegie Hall in collaboration with American Public Media (APM) present a series of ten national broadcasts live from Carnegie Hall. The 2013-14 season will feature a range of orchestras, small ensembles and soloists.
Carnegie Hall Live is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. Art Works.
Join us April 30 at 8 pm for a live broadcast by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. Robert Spano conducts Britten's War Requiem, a towering piece whose importance seems to grow by the year. Completed in 1962, the work combines the Latin Mass for the Dead with texts by English poet Wilfred Owen, who himself was killed in action just a week before the end of World War I.
