On WCRB In Concert, four performances from around the Boston area illuminate fascinating stories behind musical masterpieces. Mistral performs Wagner's sweetly tender Siegfried Idyll in Brookline, and pianist Piers Lane paints late-night dreamscapes through Chopin's Nocturnes, Op. 9. Also, one of today's most dynamic chamber ensembles performs Prokofiev's String Quartet No. 2 in Concord, and Joshua Weilerstein celebrates his first season as Music Director of the Phoenix Orchestra with Beethoven's Symphony No. 7.
