Mozart's Attic Sunday February 6th at 6:00 p.m.

When is a prelude not a prelude? When it doesn’t lead to something else? Apparently not.

Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Gershwin, Scriabin, and other composers wrote heaps of preludes that are actually preludes to nothing, and if they failed to deliver something musically meaty to follow, at least they left us with some nifty preludes. We’ll look at some of these this week in a program of preludes.

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.)
