Erik Satie

This week we'll hear another of the Mozart piano concerti -- this one a little earlier, the ninth -- performed on period instruments including a replica of the piano that Mozart himself often played.

Next we'll take a look at a popular song of the late 1500s, and see how four different 16th-century composers arranged it both for keyboards and for instrumental ensembles.

In the second hour, we'll hear a set of Satie's piano miniatures, Debussy's La Mer, and a ballet suite by Hindemith.

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.)
