Mozart's Attic Sunday August 14th at 6:00 p.m.

We’ll look at the schism in 19th-century Russian music this week: Romanticism versus Orientalism, with examples from Tchaikovsky, Moussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and others.

And of course we’ll check in with the Traveling Mozarts as we continue with the cycle of Wolfgang’s symphonies. He’s eleven years old now, and set to premiere his newest symphony with himself and his sister playing in a tavern in the present-day Czech Republic. How did that happen?

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.)
