Mozart's Attic - Thursday, March 31st 10:00 pm

Johann Sebastian Bach

It's Bach's 331st birthday this Thursday and we celebrate it with two hours of organ works, choral music, suites, and harpsichord and string ensemble music -- barely scratching the surface of the body of work of this central figure in the development of Western music.

We'll have performances by E. Power Biggs, Glenn Gould, Virgil Fox, Gustav Leonhardt and the Collegium Aureum, Martin Galling, and a host of others, including both historically accurate recordings and a couple of interpretations that Bach wouldn't have expected.

Originally from central Massachusetts, Jay has called the Space Coast home for more than 30 years. 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.)
