Beethoven 'MacBeth' Overture Receives World Premiere Radio Broadcast On Public Radio In The Nation's Capital

Classical WETA-FM, the restored classical music station, under the Chairmanship of Sharon Percy Rockefeller, serving -- like the National Gallery of Art -- the humanities and public culture in the Nation's Capital, this morning broadcast for the first time ever, on any public radio station, the newly reconstructed Beethoven 'MacBeth' Overture, as performed and recorded by the [Saint]Petersburg Philharmonic, the Russian Federation. The recording may become commercially available for purchase sometime in March. It was a beautiful performance of a beautiful unknown work of music and the humanities.


Best wishes extended to the National Symphony Orchestra's great Conductor Laureate, Mstislav Rostropovich, and his wife Galina Vishnaskaya and their children, as Maestro Rostropovich again undergoes tests at a Moscow, Russian Federation, hospital. Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin was reported to have visited the great artist, in hospital, yesterday.


The Nation's Capital [Washington, D.C.] is still without a Music Conservatory worthy of a great National Capital City...
