Classical Music Playlist, March 30, 2022

Max Bruch’s 1866 Violin Concerto is his most famous work, but he also wrote three symphonies, including his Symphony No. 1 just a year later. It is a very Brahmsian work – in the best sense of the word – and it was even dedicated to Brahms. Bruch’s Symphony No. 1 is your noon masterpiece today at 2 p.m. Plus, we continue to celebrate Women’s History Month throughout the day with music from Marianne Martinez of 1700s Vienna. You’ll also hear performances from clarinetist Sabine Meyer, one of the first female members of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and proud owner of a distinguished solo and chamber career.
