Evening Masterwork: Goldmark’s Violin Concerto No. 1

Karl Goldmark (1830-1915)

Violin Concerto No. 1 in A, Op. 28, by Karl Goldmark

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

Karl Goldmark was a self-taught composer whose formal music education actually focused on the violin. It’s fitting, then, that his most performed and recorded work to this day is his Violin Concerto No. 1, which he completed in 1877. It’s our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
