Edvard Grieg

Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite used to be one of those "Introduction to classical music" pieces than many first heard as children -- like Peter and the Wolf and The Nutcracker. The suite had its origins in Ibsen's play of the same name, a play not intended for children by any means, but the imagery of Grieg's music makes the scenes come alive to young and old alike.
 
We revisit this old favorite as our featured work this week, up in the Attic.

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.)
