Evening Masterwork: the Guitar Concerto by Molino

Guitar Concerto in e Op. 56 by Francesco Molino

Evening Masterwork for April 3, 2020 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9

There isn’t a whole lot of information out there concerning composer Francesco Molino, though it does seem he shared a similar life to that of composers Ferdinando Carulli and Mauro Giuliani. Like them, Molino was born in Italy, and then travelled to Spain before settling elsewhere abroad – Paris, in Molino’s case. He also devoted much of his time to creating music for solo guitar or guitar in small chamber groups. Our Evening Masterwork is the Guitar Concerto in e-minor by Francesco Molino: tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR.
