Symphony No. 1 in E-Flat by Max Bruch

Evening Masterwork for February 24, 2020 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9

The Symphony No. 1 by Max Bruch was composed in 1867, and it is dedicated to Johannes Brahms, who was a contemporary of Bruch. The First Symphony sticks with familiar models and structures: it is in 4 movements, and it shifts often from major, to minor, and back again. Hear it tonight at 7: our Evening Masterwork, on Classical WSMR.
