Evening Masterwork: Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Violin Concerto in e-minor, Op. 64, by Felix Mendelssohn

Evening Masterwork for January 14 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9

Felix Mendelssohn completed his Violin Concerto in 1844, and to this day it is one of the most frequently performed of all violin concertos. The work uses a standard classical structure with a few changes made by the composer, mostly because of his own taste and the changing times. It’s our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
