Symphonic statements from Mozart, Mahler and Shostakovich
This week we'll hear major musical statements by Gustav Mahler, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Dimitri Shostakovich that showcase symphonic form in full bloom. Co-hosts Michael Stern and Dan Margolies will put each work in its artistic and historical context.
