Evening Masterwork: Mahler’s Symphony No. 4

Gustav Mahler (1860-1911)

Symphony No. 4 in G by Gustav Mahler

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

The Symphony No. 4 by Gustav Mahler is essentially made up of fleeting childhood mementos, resulting in a relatively charming and direct work. However, similar to Mahler’s other more “serious” symphonies – the ones dealing with more existential topics – it is still profound, being profoundly “about” childhood. It’s our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
