Evening Masterwork: Dvorak’s Piano Concerto

Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904)

Piano Concerto in G, Op. 33, by Antonin Dvorak

Evening Masterwork for September 12, 2020 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9

Antonin Dvorak composed only one piano concerto in his lifetime, and there is a lot of evidence that it is modeled after the piano concerto that Johannes Brahms composed 18 years earlier. In fact, Dvorak composed his concerto as a “thank you” to Brahms for helping him get a set of pieces published, which lead to Dvorak’s first international success. Dvorak’s Piano Concerto in g-minor is our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
