Arcangelo Corelli

Arcangelo Corelli didn't leave us with a great body of music, but several other composers of the Baroque took notice of his concerti. Francois Couperin was an admirer, and he wrote a tribute piece in his honor. J.S. Bach studied Corelli's music and he was an admirer of Couperin as well. 
 
We'll follow that thread for a bit this Thursday night.
 
The survey of the symphonies of Jean Sibelius continues with the Third Symphony in C, and we'll hear some other and completely different music from Scandinavia as well.

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.)
