Evening Masterwork

Each weeknight at 7:00 PM join Susan Giles Wantuck 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

Felix Mendelssohn
Even as a teenager, Felix Mendelssohn showed brilliance--- take for example, his Octet, Op. 20.  In the autographed score for that work,  Mendelssohn directed that it should be played “in the style of a symphony in all parts.” Join us on Classical WSMR to hear Mendelssohn’s Octet tonight at 7.  It’s our Evening Masterwork.
