This edition of Afternoon Classical we explore the progeny of Mozart symphonic works, as contrasted by the infusion of Dvorak's romanticism in his 4th Symphony. We ask: how does the landscape exert influence into the work of the composer? Mozart's Linz symphony, composed while Mozart was out of Vienna shares resemblance to the composer's early works composed in Vienna.

Wilhelm Kempff performs his own transcriptions of Bach choral preludes during the Bach Hour. For as much a scholar of Beethoven as Kempff is unarguably, his sense of lyricism and rhythmic symbolism are especially captured in this recording from the pianist's later years.
