Beethoven and Schubert

Beethoven and Schubert -- each in his own way a tragic figure -- worked in the same city at the same time and produced some of the most significant bodies of work in all music.

They didn't socialize -- age, personality, and class differences precluded that -- but they had a great esteem for each others' talent, and it's easy to see why that was so.

We'll go back to early 19th-century Vienna this week, and we'll just sit back and enjoy the music of these two contemporaries. 

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.)
