Evening Masterworks: Franz Schubert's Symphony No. 3 in D for July 19, 2023
Evening Masterworks: Franz Schubert's Symphony No. 3 in D
In 1815, Franz Schubert was a busy 18-year old. He was working full-time, year-round as a school teacher, taking twice-weekly composition lessons, and he still managed to compose four operas, two masses, two symphonies, and 145 songs. One of those symphonies was his Third Symphony in D Major, and it’s our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
