Dvorák, Tchaikovsky and Borodin String Quartets
Our multiple-part series tracing the evolution of the string quartet continues with magnificent works from Antonin Dvorák, Peter Tchaikovsky, and Alexander Borodin. During the 1870s and 1880s, well into the Romantic period, string quartets were falling by the wayside for a lot of composers, but a few managed to slip through the fabric of time and tell stories just as wondrous as the great Romantic tone poems that were popular at the time. Many of these unique quartets have become calling cards for these three composers. Playlist information at exploringmusic.wfmt.com.

Let Me Tell You A Story Part 1
Composers telling us stories. Franz Schubert died asking for more of James Fenimore Cooper’s novels like The Last of the Mohicans. We can only imagine that Schubert was looking for more musical inspiration from stories of forbidden love caught in the crosshairs of the French and Indian War. The next weeks will not feature just tone poems, operas, or Shakespeare, but music inspired by all sorts of poems and books. Playlist information at exploringmusic.wfmt.com.
