On Friday night, February 28th at 8pm, JPR's Classics & News Service will broadcast the next concert in the series Carnegie Hall Live, featuring The Philadelphia Orchestra under the direction of Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

The program features some of the most profoundly emotional meditations found in the orchestral repertoire. The performance includes Beethoven's deeply felt "Eroica" Symphony, whose funeral march has rhythmic patterns echoed in Strauss's post-war lament Metamorphosen. Also on the program is Shostakovich's playfully dark and virtuosic Cello Concerto No. 1 with Truls Mørk.

In partnership with Carnegie Hall and WQXR, Carnegie Hall Live is a season of “must-have” classical music events, broadcast live from the nation’s most famous concert hall. The series includes concerts from all three of Carnegie Hall’s iconic stages: Weill Recital Hall, Zankel Hall and Stern Auditorium.

Tune in Friday night, February 28th at 8pm for Carnegie Hall Live with The Philadelphia Orchestra on the Classics & News Service.

As FM Network Program Director and Music Director, Eric oversees many aspects of JPR's broadcast day. He still hosts the occasional Open Air or classical music shift, and is the driving force behind JPR Live Sessions - our popular series of live in-studio music performances and conversations.
