Edvard Grieg

Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg sought to bring the music of his homeland into the central European mainstream that dominated so much of the 19th-century musical scene. He wasn’t entirely successful, but a few of his works quickly became concert stage favorites. We’ll hear one of them, the A minor Piano Concerto, on this week’s program.

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.)
