Evening Masterwork: Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Symphony No. 3 in A, Op. 56, “Scottish,” by Felix Mendelssohn

Evening Masterwork for September 26, 2020 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9 FM

Felix Mendelssohn first got the idea for his third symphony while on a trip to Scotland. He was 20 years old at the time, but he wasn’t in any hurry to finish the symphony – it took him 13 years to complete the work. Mendelssohn’s Third Symphony – the Scottish Symphony – is our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
