The Baltimore Symphony's 2011-12 season is focusing on revolutionary women. One of the centerpieces is Arthur Honegger's oratorio "Joan of Arc at the Stake", being performed November 17 and 18th, 2011 at The Meyerhoff, and on the 19th at Carnegie Hall. Classical WETA's David Ginder chatted with BSO Music Director Marin Alsop, who conducts these performances by the BSO plus many assisting artists, about Honegger's emotionally-charged piece, about the unusual instruments called for in the semi-staged oratorio, and about balancing passionate expression with the job of performing.
