For those of you who might want to hear Paul McCartney's "Ocean's Kingdom" for yourself, WQXR (WNYC's classical music sibling) will broadcast the work on 105.9 FM and WQXR.org on Wednesday Sept. 28 at 8 pm.

You can read a write-up about the work on WQXR's website here and listen to WQXR host David Garland's interview with McCartney as well. There are also video clips from some of McCartney's other forays into classical music.

The four-movement Ocean's Kingdom has been recorded by the London Classical Orchestra and will be released on Oct. 4, a week after the first run closes in New York (it returns in January). This is McCartney's fifth foray into classical music, after the Liverpool Oratorio (1991), Standing Stone (1997), Working Classical (1999) and Ecce Cor Meum (2006).


I'm guessing that it's the London Classical Orchestra's recording that's going to be broadcast, not a recording made during an NYCB rehearsal or performance ...

The ads on WQXR for Ocean's Kingdom with Mr. McCartney disparaging piano lessons really tick me off! :FIREdevil:
