Evening Masterwork: Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Guitar Concerto No. 2

Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (1895-1968)

The concerto as a genre seemed to speak to composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco much more than the symphony: he once said, “I found that the form of the Concerto did better correspond to my spiritual position.” The Guitar Concerto No. 2 in C sums up this feeling, a work composed in 1953 and is almost like a suite of dances. We’ll hear it tonight at 7, our Evening Masterwork on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
