Evening Masterwork for September 19, 2020 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9

Franz Schubert was just 16 when he completed his First Symphony, and it was one of the composer’s best pieces to date. The Symphony No. 1 came after earlier efforts to compose a symphony – both instances the composer had started and scrapped what he had – as well as a handful of completed overtures.
