    Amazing program! We caught the last half-hour and immediately told the rest of the family not to speak a word to us until the program was over. It was a privilege to be able to watch it. I hope you plan to air it again, so that we can view the entire program.

    We will be able to watch the entire 2-hour concert in movie theatres on March 18. Check the following website:

    I would really like to see Hancock’s ” Rhapsody in Blue” with the LA Phil. Will it be posted ?

    We recorded the Herbie Hancock Great Performances show at an off hour, and when we went to watch it, it was a replay of Washington Week. Could you schedule it again? If so, when?

    I’m looking to purchase a copy of Herbie Hancock’s (AMAZING!) performance of (Gershwin’s) Rhapsody in Blue with the LA Philharmonic and the subsequent special on Gustavo Dudamel and “el systeme”. I’m a musician and teacher and am interested in learning much more about “el systeme”.

    I see many requests by people who wish to purchase the dvd of the HERBIE HANCOCK performance of Gershwin…I see no answers of how to obtain such. I, too, would like to purchase this amazing concert..or, at least, to see it repeated on PBS.
