Note by Note

A few years ago, the New York Times did a terrific series that tracked the construction of a new Steinway piano. If you were as fascinated by that piece as I was, you'll want to check out Note by Note: The Making of Steinway L1037 tonight at 8pm on WGBH 2 (with several subsequent airings). Preview above.

Once you've felt the Steinway love, up next at 9pm is the Vienna Philharmonic Summer Concert 2009 (also with several subsequent airings).

And just in case you missed the live broadcast of the opening night of the New York Philharmonic, including the ravishing, gorgeous Poèmes pour Mi by Olivier Messiaen, there are a few more airings of that as well.

Who needs sitcoms?
