Evening Masterwork

Each night 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 night at 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and in Tampa at 103.9.

This week on Evening Masterwork

Schubert Piano Quintet in A Major “The Trout”
In 1817, Franz Schubert composed a short song called “The Trout,” which told the story of an onlooker on a riverbank watching a “happy little fish” swimming in the river. The fish, a trout, is soon caught by a fisherman, much to the onlooker’s dismay.  Two years later, Schubert incorporated this song into his Piano Quintet in A Major, which was nicknamed the “Trout” Quintet.
