Join us as we continue our journey exploring the symphonic form. In this week you’ll hear familiar pieces from Copland, Prokofiev, Hindemith, and Piston, as well as intriguing works from some of their contemporaries who may have slipped under your radar. Please let us introduce you to American works by Carpenter, Cowell, and Hanson; Finnish symphonies by Madetoja, Melartin, and Merikanto; the Austrian composers Gál, Schmidt, Toch, and Zemlinsky; and other symphonists from England, France, Russia and Spain. We’ll even sample some works from the conductors Wilhelm Furtwängler and Otto Klemperer, who wrote 9 symphonies between them.
