Pyotr Tchaikovsky

We're in the midst of the cycle of the six numbered Tchaikovsky symphonies, and this week brings us to Symphony No. 3, one of the seldom performed and infrequently recorded Tchaikovsky works. We'll hear it in a dramatic performance by Gennadi Rozhdestvensky conducting an orchestra of the Russian  Ministry of Culture.

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.)
