The Frick Collection 

For 76 years, the series Concerts from The Frick Collection has delighted listeners with the finest in keyboard recitals, all manner of chamber groups and groundbreaking early music ensembles. Many of the century's greatest artists have performed in the 175-seat music room at The Frick Collection, the former Upper East Side residence of industrialist Henry Clay Frick.

Many of these performances are New York debuts of nationally and internationally acclaimed musicians, helping them launch or further their careers. Since 1939, listeners have enjoyed performances of the highest caliber in broadcasts from The Frick Collection, and this tradition continues to flourish.
