The concert is a recording of the current subscription-series program, which opened Thursday and concludes with Tuesday’s 8 p.m. concert. The streaming, which can be heard at, is offered in partnership with Classical New England (99.5 FM), a service of WGBH. Streams will be online at the BSO site for up a year after the initial concert.
