Liszt's Transcendental Etudes, a series of twelve compositions for solo piano, began life when the composer was only 15 years old. After three revisions, including edits to make the piece playable for smaller hands, the pieces were published as we know them in 1852.

While Johann Gottlieb Goldberg is most famously known for Bach's "Goldberg" Variations, he was a child prodigy and composer in his own right. Though he perished from tuberculosis before his 30th birthday, and his collected body of works is quite small by current standards, Goldberg might just be the most famous composer whose music remains largely unheard. Tune in tonight from 8p.m.

Olafur Arnalds' new project Island Songs involved traveling to seven different locations in Iceland in seven weeks to collaborate with seven artists. Hear highlights from Arnalds new album right here with on-demand streaming.  

After losing his right arm in the First World War, musician Paul Wittgenstein resolved to become a one-armed pianist. Since he lacked the gift of composition, he instead commissioned new "left hand" works from leading composers such as Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Franz Schmidt. Join us to hear Korngold's Suite for 2 Violins, Cello & Piano Left Hand, Op. 23 in its entirety tonight from 8 to 10 p.m.

French Romantic composer Hector Berlioz wrote his most famous work, Symphonie Fantastique, to win the affection of a woman.  Describing the doom of the artist in his obsession over "idee fixe" (the object of fixation), it did eventually help him capture the heart of his beloved. We'll be keeping the #SundaySymphony tradition alive with Symphonie Fantastique, this Sunday on KUAF from  8 to 10 p.m.
