Evening Masterwork

Each weeknight at 7:00 PM join Tyler Kline for some of the best music ever written. Music that’s good enough to earn the title “Masterwork.” Listen for full length performances and large scale works like Carmina Burana, Mahler Symphonies, some new recordings and music that will be performed in our local concert halls. A full masterwork is featured each weeknight at 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and in Tampa at 103.9.

This week on Evening Masterwork

Robert Schumann: Carnaval Op. 9
Originally a work for solo piano, Robert Schumann’s Carnaval is a sort of musical autobiography made up of 20 short character pieces. In the work, Schumann uses four note pitch motifs in various combinations to “spell out” the name of various places, part of his own name, and some parts of the word “Fasching,” the German word for Carnival.
