A comparison of the parallel journeys of Beethoven and Scriabin, as explored through the lens of the Piano Sonata. Starting with their first sonatas--Beethoven's f minor from 1795 and Scriabin's f minor from 1892--and moving through middle-period works--Beethoven's F-sharp Major from 1809 and Scriabin's F-Sharp Major from 1903--and finally reaching Beethoven's last sonata, the c minor from 1822, and Scriabin's last, the keyless Op. 70 from 1913--we explored questions of inspiration, transformation, and spiritual transcendence.

Hope at the edge of the hereafter; two transcendental works featuring the clarinet in a prominent role. The first, Mozart's Clarinet Concerto, written in 1791, the year of the composer's death. Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time followed. Messiaen penned the work in a WWII prison camp in the winter between 1940 and '41.

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.
