Mozart's Attic Sunday April 9th: Bach's Easter Oratorio

Bach’s Easter Oratorio is considerably shorter than some of his similar works, and it’s also considerably less familiar.

On this Sunday’s program, we’ll have a performance of this curious work that combines some of Bach’s most festive music with episodes of pathos that seem contradictory at first glance, but maybe not so much on reflection.

Sunday at 6:00 p.m. on WFIT 89.5 FM and streaming at WFIT.org

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.)
