KMFA is proud to present a special Listen Local broadcast of the Austin Symphony’s “Picture Perfect.”
Listen to this broadcast by tuning your radio to 89.5 FM or streaming online at kmfa.org on Sunday, March 1 at 7:00 p.m. This is a broadcast of a previously recorded event. It will not be archived for on-demand listening.
Tune in to KMFA for the next in our series of Austin Symphony Orchestra Listen Local broadcasts. “Picture Perfect” features Autumn and Winter from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons with ASO concertmaster Jessica Mathaes as soloist. The program also includes Paul Hindemith’s Symphony Mathis der Maler, on themes from Hindemith’s opera of the same name based on the life and work of 15thcentury painter Matthias Grünewald. Concluding this broadcast is Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, in an orchestration by Slovenian composer Leo Funtek that predates the famous Ravel orchestration and is perhaps more reflective of Mussorgsky’s original piano score. This broadcast is hosted by Jeffrey Blair.
This broadcast is part of KMFA’s Listen Local series. This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
