Evening Masterwork: Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4 in f Op. 36 for December 3, 2022

The subject of fate, and fate itself, was something that started to haunt Tchaikovsky around 1876. Two years later, “fate” would manifest itself as music in Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony. In this work, the composer says Fate acts as a seed that sets the entire symphony in motion. Hear it tonight at 7: our Evening Masterwork on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
