This will be the 75th summer that the Boston Symphony Orchestra moves its camp to Tanglewood to fill the Berkshires with music. To celebrate the anniversary, the BSO will offer 75 historical recordings from past summers online for free.

However, the performances will only be available for on-demand streaming, one day each. Everyday, all summer long, starting tomorrow, a new treasure will be exhumed from the vault for all to hear, but only for that day. After the day is over, it will be replaced with a new one.

The 75 Streams project is the brainchild Anthony Fogg, and he's brought in a few of his favorite historical Tanglewood recordings to play for Radio Boston.

Guests:

  • Anthony Fogg, artistic administrator, Boston Symphony Orchestra
