As the 19th century came to a close, cathartic changes were coming to the European classical music scene. But they would not come at the hands of Johannes Brahms. No revolutionary he, Brahms was a culminating figure of the Romantic style. This doesn't mean he lacked originality, and his Fourth Symphony with its remarkable finale movement demonstrates that he had a lot yet to say.

Jeremy Siskind will join me tonight in a 3-part interview we recorded Saturday afternoon. We'll be talking about the American Jazz Pianist Competition, what it means to Central Florida, and how the community can get involved with this event. 

We begin this week with Rachel Barton Pine's New CD of Vivaldi's concerti for Viola d'Amore, a now-extinct instrument equipped with a set of resonator strings that produced tones, sitar-like, by means of sympathetic vibrations from the bowed strings.
