Keeping Score: 13 Days When Music Changed Forever, March 24 at 4 PM

Michael Tilson Thomas

It was April 7, 18o5: Beethoven turned the music world on its ear at the premiere of what - up until that time - was the longest, most complicated symphonic work ever composed. His 3rd symphony, the Eroica, changed our idea of what music could express. 

Instead of classical form and rarified beauty, the symphony laid out the full range of human feelings and emotions. The first public performance of Beethoven's Eroica is the theme for this Sunday's show. March 24, 4 to 5 pm.

Written when Mendelssohn was only 17, his Midsummer Night's Dream Overture was the first "concert overture" - a work not intended to introduce a dramatic presentation, but to represent, complete in itself, a literary work, or story, or place.

Academy of Vocal Arts on WRTI: Massenet's DON QUICHOTTE, March 10th, 3 pm

Burak Bilgili and Zachary Nelson
Paul Sirochman

Join us on Sunday afternoon for an AVA Opera special broadcast! Jules Massenet's DON QUICHOTTE is a lyrical ode to the chivalrous idealist Don Quixote. Loosely based on the popular Cervantes novel, the opera is immediately inspired by Le chevalier de la Longue Figure, a play by the poet Jacques Le Lorrain. The tale of Don Quixote meets the music of Massenet, complete with Spanish serenades and a profoundly poignant finale.
