Mozart's Attic - Thursday, March 24th 10:00 pm

Johann Sebastian Bach

Though he spent most of his life  in what we now call eastern Germany, J.S. Bach was very much au courant as to what was going on elsewhere in Europe, studying other styles, tinkering with them, and sometimes trying his own hand at writing music as an English, French, or Italian composer might do it. This week we wrap up a series of Orchestral Suites in which Bach writes in the High Parisian style.

Next we'll look at some Renaissance and Baroque Spanish music for keyboard, then music of Beethoven and Stravinsky.

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.)
