Mozart's Attic - Thursday, April 9th at 10:00 pm

William Boyce

Mozart's Attic begins with some dance music from the middle ages and then from a little bit later --  the 1400s.

Then we have some Renaissance music for double reed consort.

Next we begin a new series featuring the great violin concerti, beginning with the Brahms Concerto in D.

Harp music of Debussy, a piano trio by Jennifer Higdon played by the Lincoln Trio -- who recently gave a concert locally, Rimsky Korsakov's Russian Easter Overture, and harpsichord pieces by Balbastre and Couperin.

Then we have what was probably a drinking song by Mozart, written for his fellow Freemasons, and we close with Number Six in the cycle of eight symphonies by post-Handelian English composer William Boyce

He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)
