Mozart's Attic Sunday May 8th at 6:00 p.m.

Paul Hindemith

Paul Hindemith, Kurt Weill, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Igor Stravinsky had little in common — except that they chose not to live and work in their native countries: lands with inhospitable political situations that would only get worse. Coincidentally, they all ended up in the United States.

On this week’s program, we’ll listen to some music from these four composers who chose to absent themselves from the Third Reich and the Soviet Union.

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.)
