Vassili Kalinnikov (1866 – 1901)

Evening Masterwork: Kalinnikov’s Symphony

A symphony by a rarely-performed Russian composer is our masterwork for you this Sunday evening.

If it hadn’t been for the encouragement of Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff , we may never have had the opportunity to know Vassili Kalinnikov.  Tchaikovsky promoted his talents and Rachmaninoff saw to it that his music was published. Get to know Vassili Kalinnikov through his masterwork this evening at 7 on Classical WSMR.
