New York Philharmonic Launches Podcast Series

Classic Arts News   New York Philharmonic Launches Podcast Series
 
The New York Philharmonic is launching a pilot group of podcasts, beginning today. The free podcasts will feature interviews with guest artists, conductors, and Philharmonic musicians talking about upcoming concerts, along with short illustrative musical excerpts.

Elliott Forrest, the Peabody Award-winning broadcaster, producer, and afternoon host on 96.3 FM WQXR, will be the producer and host of the podcasts, which may be downloaded from www.nyphil.org/podcasts or from iTunes.

The New York Philharmonic also makes available as downloads from iTunes four live concerts per year through DG Concerts, part of a three-year agreement with Deutsche Grammophon. Ringtones, which are also available through DG Concerts, are selected from live Philharmonic concerts in the 2005-06 season. They may be acquired directly to a handset through text messaging, or through a link on the Philharmonic's website, www.nyphil.org/dgconcerts.
