Thursdays at 10:00 pm

Produced by WQXR and Carnegie Hall, and syndicated by the WFMT Radio Network, the new season of Carnegie Hall Live features some of the world’s greatest performers and ensembles in a wide range of styles, from early music to solo recitals to orchestral performances. The season kicks off with last fall’s opening-night gala concert by the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Alan Gilbert and featuring guest soloist Yevgeny Kissin in a rousing performance of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1. It continues with more highlights from the hall’s 2015-16 season.

Carnegie Hall Live is hosted by WQXR’s Jeff Spurgeon, who’s joined by various co-hosts from the arts and media world including Christine Goerke, Susan Graham, Anthony McGill, and John Hockenberry, among others.
