Guitar Quartet in G by Franz Schubert

Evening Masterwork for October 18, 2020 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9

In the early part of the 19th Century, when there was a sudden increase in the popularity of the guitar, Franz Schubert was ready. As a teenager, he had studied guitar and even played with guitarist and composer Mauro Giuliani, and would later write his Guitar Quartet that he intended to play himself. Franz Schubert’s Guitar Quartet in G is our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
