Mozart's Attic - Thursday, Jan 29 at 10:00 pm

Leonard Bernstein

This week we begin a cycle of the three symphonies of Leonard Bernstein with his Symphony No. 1, known as the Jeremiah Symphony, taken from the Book of Lamentations. We'll also hear his ballet score Fancy Free. These are two works that were written before Bernstein turned twenty-six.

Another look at Lenny in the first hour of this week's Mozart's Attic.

The program will also include an overture by Beethoven, and will conclude with Gustav Holst's most well-known work, The Planets.

Sunday night at 10 on 89.5 FM and streaming live at WFIT.org and the NPR Music App.
