Houston Symphony’s free stream of concert led by Frühbeck de Burgos

Posted on: July 2, 2014

The Houston Symphony is offering a free audio stream at its website of its April 2011 performance led by the late conductor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos. The program—which can be accessed through July 9 at houstonsymphony.org/audiostream and through the Houston Symphony’s mobile app—consists of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade and Mozart’s Serenade No. 6 in D Major (K239) and Flute Concerto No. 2 (K314), with soloist Aralee Dorough. The musicians of the Houston Symphony, American Federation of Musicians, and Local AF of M 65-659 granted special permission to make the broadcast available without further compensation. The program was recorded by Houston Public Media on April 8-10, 2011. At the time of his death, on June 11, 2014, Frühbeck de Burgos was chief conductor of the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and guest conductor for orchestras including the Houston Symphony, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and Los Angeles Philharmonic.
