Mozart's Attic Thursday August 3rd at 10:00 PM

Beethoven

Was Beethoven's fourth the last gasp of the classical 18th century symphony?
 
Maybe yes, maybe no, but certainly something was afoot, and there wasn't much more to be said after Beethoven finished his last of his "traditional" great works and went instead for drama and passion in his symphonies. One way or another, this week's featured work marked the close of one era.

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.)
