Schubert Six at the KlaraFestival
Belgium's KlaraFestival aims to get classical music out of the concert hall and into interesting new spaces, holding concerts in train stations, and even the Brussels International Airport. Today, we'll hear a performance from the 2008 KlaraFestival. The National Orchestra of Belgium performed Franz Schubert's Symphony No. 6 - not in an airport, but in a more conventional location, a concert hall in Brussels.
