Then & Now 12/18: WSMR Presents TFO!
On this date in 1795, it was the possible premiere of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in C, in Vienna at a concert organized by Haydn to perform three of his "London" Symphonies in that city.
You can hear that work on January 5th as Classical WSMR presents the Florida Orchestra at a benefit concert for your classical music radio station. Jahja Ling returns to town to conduct the concert that will also feature the Sibelius Symphony No. 2. All of the proceeds from this special night will go to support WSMR, so by all means, go out and have a good time, all while supporting your radio station at the same time! Tickets are available online right now at wsmr.org. Special thanks to Mr. Philip Passantino, and the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay for helping to make this evening possible.
