Welcome to the new wgbh.org! And welcome to Resonances, a space we’ve set aside to let you know about some great things coming your way on the radio and the web, flesh out some of the back stories to our programming, and generally keep you in touch with what we’re up to with classical music at WGBH.

You’ll hear from me pretty regularly (check out info about me and other hosts at our profiles page), and other hosts and producers here will be contributing their thoughts along the way as well. One of the things I love about our work here is that it’s always got a personal stamp. When a host programs something, it’s because there’s something particularly compelling that he or she wants you to be in touch with. We do our best to make that happen on the air, but this space also gives us a chance to get into the details a bit more, sometimes with images, sometimes with text that illuminates aspects of the music you hear, and sometimes with audio of those wee gems from interviews and events that don’t make it to air.

And take some time to go spelunking in what amounts to a major redesign of wgbh.org. One of the things we’re shooting for is to make classical music more readily available to you in as many ways as we can. So one thing you’ll want to spend a little time with is the media player at the top of this page. It’s your starting point for accessing audio from programs you’ve heard on the air, as well as podcasts and our streams, including All-Classical WGBH.

I’ve got several ideas for what’s coming down the pike here at Resonances, so check back often to see what paths we take, and again, welcome!
