Midday Music Playlist for 07/25/2011

Carl (or Karl or Karoly) Goldmark was born in small-town Hungary in 1830 into a cantor's family, one of 20 children. Poor, he managed to make his way to the Vienna Conservatory as a violinist and eventually become an acclaimed composer. This morning we hear a new recording of his high-spirited Symphony No. 1, "Rustic Wedding."
