Reinhold Gliere: Symphony No. 1 in E-flat
Reinhold Gliere started work on his first symphony while he was a student at the Moscow Conservatory, and the work is unmistakably Russian. In a lot of ways it is closer in character to the music of Borodin, but also resembles the music of Kalinnikov. We’ll hear the Symphony No. 1 by Reinhold Gliere: it’s our Evening Masterwork at 7 tonight on Classical WSMR.
