Website deficiency

Week-after-week you fail to inform your audience about the program you are broadcasting.
For today 2/26/2012, no where can I find Les nuits d'été


Berlioz Les nuits d'été

I'm not sure exactly to what you are referring - whether you heard a promo for the Berlioz work or not. But I can tell you that you can hear the work Tuesday evening 2/28 at 8:00 p.m. on the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra program. Here are the listings for that show (which is directly from our website at http://interactive.w... )

2/28 Berlioz: Roman Carnival Overture, Les Nuits d’été, Harold in Italy (Sasha Cooke, ms; Jonathan Vinocour, vla; Michael Tilson Thomas, cond)

The work will be heard again on Thursday evening, 3/1 at 8:00 p.m. on the Chicago Symphony Orchestra program with conductor Sir Mark Elder.

3/1 Berlioz: Le Corsaire Overture, Queen Mab Scherzo; Romeo at the Tomb of the Capulets from Romeo and Juliet, Harold in Italy, Nuits d'été (Lawrence Power, vla; Susan Graham, ms; Sir Mark Elder and Pierre Boulez, cond)

I hope this helps you in your listening.
