Mozart's Attic - Thursday, April 16th, 10 pm

Leonid Kogan

We begin with a baroque hour featuring a battle suite for brasses by Samuel Scheidt, the seventh in our cycle of the eight symphonies of William Boyce, the Vivaldi Gloria, and an orchestral concerto by Johann David Heinichen -- once  the official composer to the most prestigious court orchestra in Northern Europe, now largely unknown.

The series of great violin concerti continues with Leonid Kogan's reading of the Beethoven Concerto in D, then back to the Baroque with a duet for cello and harpsichord by Bach -- the Sonata in D major performed b Andre Navarra and Ruggero Gerlin.

(WFIT has come a long way since.)
