Program:
WEBERN: Sechs Stücke für Orchester, Op. 6
MAHLER: Symphony No. 7


Description:
A study in contrasts, this week's show features the minimalist Six Pieces by Webern (how small can you make a symphony and still have it count?) and the sweeping "Song of the Night" symphony (yes, a symphony can really be that long) by Mahler.

Karla B. of Livermore, CA won this week's Encore Contest by correctly ID'ing Maurice Ravel's Pavane Pour une Infante Defunte

Produced in partnership with Radio Netherlands Worldwide
