Evening Masterwork: Frederic Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 in e minor Op. 11 for November 8, 2022

Early on in the 20th century, Chopin’s works were coming under a bit of fire. One critic even said that his Piano Concerto No. 1 was “too much in the nature of a technical study.” At the time he composed the First Concerto, Chopin was just as much, probably even more so, known as a virtuoso pianist than he was a composer. It’s our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
