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

Johannes Brahms: Serenade No. 2 in A Op. 16
Historically, a serenade was a piece of music written for entertainment purposes, and usually to honor someone. For example, Mozart wrote a handful of serenades for wedding ceremonies. How is it, then, that the ultra-serious Johannes Brahms ended up writing two serenades? In many ways, Brahms’ Serenades were a bit of a warm up for his symphonies. [http://bit.ly/2iQLJWY]
