Thanks to the Baltimore Symphony and Marin Alsop, to Carnegie Hall, and to WQXR for bringing to radio and the internet this wonderful selection of works.

I for one am extrremely tired of the very conservative programming (or the too avant garde programming) of most concerts. This was a perfect combination of pieces!

The annual Spring for Music series is quite a treat! Looking forward to the other concerts in the series this year.

Listening from Ohio to the live feed from WQXR, and to my daughter Lura Johnson, pianist in the Prokofiev.

First time listening to a live feed on my iPad. This was possible tonight because my niece, Lura Johnson a pianist, who was performing in the Prokofiev, called me to tell me it was going to be on WQXR live. I live in California so it made for interesting cocktail hour music.
