Concerts from the Library of Congress

Host Bill McGlaughlin and our knowledgeable curators delve into the collections of the Library’s Music Division, re-discovering eloquent manuscripts, magnificent instruments and artifacts that tell the stories behind the music. Their encounters with rarities like the manuscript of a Bach cantata or an original Beethoven portrait illuminate the listener’s experience, and moments of music history come alive in landmark performances by legendary figures such as Béla Bartók and Leopold Stokowski. This season, you’ll hear three of the world’s top period instrument ensembles: Bach Collegium Japan, Apollo’s Fire, and Boston’s famous Handel and

Haydn Society; opera star Anne Sofie von Otter; violinist Jennifer Koh; the Ensemble Intercontemporain, with Matthias Pintscher; and pianist Richard Goode. Join us as Concerts from the Library of Congress celebrates a remarkable 90 years on the air!
