There are many reasons why Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony remains a mystery to this day. Its unfinished form, its unusual way of coming into public consciousness, and probably most importantly, the character of the music itself, which seems to inhabit a different realm altogether. This week, on the Season 5 Finale, we’ll explore the two existin ...…

A couple of weeks ago I promised you a Thanksgiving show on American music. I also realized that this will be my second Thanksgiving NOT living in the US, and it got me thinking about the immigration story of my family. How does this all relate to classical music?

Imagine writing a concerto that prompted Beethoven to remark to a friend: “we’ll never be able to write anything like that." That's what you get with Mozart's C Minor concerto, a piece that could be said without hyperbole to be one of the greatest ever written.

Often Haydn is thought of as a “warm-up” composer, and someone who is not taken as seriously as Mozart or Beethoven. But I continue to think this is a mistake. Next time you listen to a Haydn symphony, don’t take it as a chance to relax. Instead, take it as an opportunity to listen with total engagement, following the road that Haydn drives you ...…

There is perhaps no more iconic musical than West Side Story. The team of Bernstein, Sondheim, Laurents, and Robbins collaborated on a show that combined humor and menace and love and violence in a way that revolutionized the stage.

It can be difficult to separate Shostakovich's 5th from his political situation, but focusing only on the politics can lead us to ignore some of the most searingly powerful music of the 20th century in favor focusing only on the extra-musical forces behind the piece.

Shostakovich's 5th symphony has always been indelibly associated with politics and Shostakovich's traumatic experiences with Joseph Stalin. But what about the music itself?

Robert Schumann called Beethoven's 4th symphony “a slender Grecian maiden between two Nordic giants.” It's true that the 4th is a much lighter and brighter piece than the 3rd and 5th symphonies that surround it, but its charm, wit, and expressions of pure joy make it one of Beethoven's most enjoyable works, and one the most underrated works in ...…

This week we're focusing on the 1950s and the musical cold war between composers of the total serialist school like Boulez, Babbitt, and Carter, and the tonalists like Copland and Bernstein.
