Evening Masterworks: Franz Schubert's Guitar Quartet in G for July 11, 2023
Evening Masterworks: Franz Schubert's Guitar Quartet in G
In the early part of the 19th Century, when there was a sudden increase in the popularity of the guitar, Franz Schubert was ready. As a teenager, he had studied guitar and even played with guitarist and composer Mauro Giuliani, and would later write a Guitar Quartet that he intended to play himself. Franz Schubert’s Guitar Quartet in G is our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
