Mozart's Attic: The French High Baroque and Dmitri Shostakovich.

Dmitri Shostakovich
Dmitri Shostakovich

We begin in the French High Baroque this week and then continue our look at the Symphonies of Dmitri Shostakovich in the context of their times this week, somewhere along the way stopping to hear the music of a composer who thought Johannes Brahms was trying to kill him.

As we say, you never know what you might come across in the attic.

Sunday at 6:00 p.m. on WFIT 89.5 FM, streaming at WFIT.org, or ask your smart speaker to play WFIT.
