On Wednesday’s program we will dance to Bartok’s “Miraculous Mandarin” suite and “The Wooden Prince,” Tchaikovsky’s “Sleeping Beauty,” and a charming suite of dances from Manuel de Falla’s “Three-Cornered Hat.”

“Jewel of the Holiday Season— The New York String Seminar at Carnegie Hall” To the traditional favorites— Nutcracker and Messiah, skating at Rockefeller Center, add one more wonderful tradition: The New York String Orchestra concerts at Carnegie Hall, starting their sixth decade. Bill McGlaughlin spent two days with these extraordinarily gifted young musicians from around the world, as conductor Jaime Laredo prepared them for a Christmas Eve concert with pianist Yefim Bronfman and another with violinist Joshua Bell, and alumna guest conductor Karina Canellakis for the opening work. To celebrate this 50th anniversary 20 alumni— soloists, chamber musicians, and principal orchestral players—from Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles sat next to the students to play Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6, “Pathétique”. Spend this week sitting-in on the making of this great tradition from the New School's Mannes School of Music.

7:00 Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin
“I Hear a Rhapsody” We've borrowed our title from the 1941 jazz standard, but what is a rhapsody? In music, Grove defines a rhapsody as "an episodic instrumental composition of indefinite form." Rhapsodies came to be based on folk melodies, and composers in the 19th century began writing rhapsodies for chamber music and for symphonic orchestras. There are Hungarian Rhapsodies, Slavonic Rhapsodies, Blue Rhapsodies, Rhapsodies of Fire, and Bohemian Rhapsodies. Spend a week with us as Bill riffs on rhapsodies, and together we'll explore what it is about this "indefinite form" that has attracted composers from around the world and across the centuries.

The Syracuse University Brass Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. James T. Spencer, and the Spirit of Syracuse Chorus, under the direction of Kay Crawford, present a joyful concert to celebrate the holidays at Hendricks Chapel.

12:00 A Chanticleer Christmas (APM)
Celebrate the season with song! Brian Newhouse hosts this one-hour program of a cappella holiday favorites, new and old, presented live in concert by Chanticleer, the superb 12-man choral ensemble known as "an orchestra of voices."

1:00 A St. Olaf Christmas (APM)
This service in song and word has become one of the nation's most cherished holiday celebrations. The festival includes hymns, carols, choral works, as well as orchestral selections celebrating the Nativity and featuring more than 500 student musicians in five choirs, and the St. Olaf Orchestra.

2:00 The Nutcracker (WCNY)
Diane Jones is your host for Tchaikovsky’s complete Nutcracker ballet.

4:00 Music of the Baroque: Brass and Choral Holiday Concert (WFMT)
Hosted by Candice Agree, tune in to the great works of composers like Samuel Scheidt, Giovanni Gabrieli, William Billings, Claudio Monteverdi, and many more presented by Music of the Baroque, a chorus and orchestra of approximately 60 professional musicians who individually perform around the nation and worldwide and come together in Chicago as a collective.

5:00 Winter Holidays Around The World (WFMT)
Winter holidays are celebrated around the world, and their music is wonderful to hear, regardless of which tradition you observe. Bill McGlaughlin’s spirited selection starts in the 12th century with Nova Stella, medieval Italian Christmas music from Saint Francis of Assisi’s staging of the nativity; jazz pianist Dave Brubeck’s classical composition “La Fiesta de la Posada,” evoking a Mexican Christmas celebration; and Vaughan Williams' “Fantasia on Christmas Carols.” We will enjoy this time of year in Paris with music from Debussy, and then travel to Polynesia for a traditional hymn, Anau Oia Ea. And then ending with an excerpt from Gian Carlo Menotti’s “Amahl and the Night Visitors” from the original television production. Turn on your radio, pour a cup of tea, cozy up to a warm fire, and enjoy the music!

6:00 Center Stage from Wolf Trap Holiday Special (PRX)
Music of the holidays from Orlando di Lasso to Irving Berlin, performed by Calmus, The Swingle Singers, Washington Symphonic Brass, and Boston Brass.

7:00 Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin
“Some of My Best Friends Are Virtuosi” Over the decades that Bill has conducted orchestras and hosted radio programs, he feels very fortunate to have worked with and become friends with many prominent musicians. In this program, Bill will feature some of these virtuosic musicians whom he has watched grow and has admired for many years. To highlight this warm spirit of musical friendships, Bill has chosen many works that composers have written for their best friends, who also happen to be virtuosi. Five hours of gorgeous rich tones and great melodies like Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto played by pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet featuring the Pacifica Quartet and their friend Anthony McGill, and Chopin’s Cello Sonata with pianist Garrick Ohlsson accompanying cellist Carter Brey.
