Igor Stravinsky

This week's featured work, Petrouchka, is Igor Stravinsky's ballet score for a fantastic and tragic tale of three puppets brought to life by a charlatan puppeteer on Shrove Tuesday, the pre-lenten day of festivities also known as Mardi Gras.

And our series of the Beethoven Piano Concerti continues  with Number Four, once again featuring Vladimir Ashkenazy conducting from the keyboard.

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.)
