Mozart's Attic Thursday Nov 10th 10:00 PM

Arvo Part

We have music from Russia, Ukraine, and countries of the Baltic this week, ranging from Rachmaninoff's channeling of age-old Orthodox chant to some recently-written music from Henryk Gorecki, Arvo Part, and Valentin Silvestrov -- with some out-of-character organ music by Jean Sibelius included as well.

It's a lot of unusual music from ancient hymnody to piano miniatures that approach New Age sounds. As always, it all begins at ten o'clock on Thursday night.

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.)
