Mozart's Attic - Thursday, December 4 at 10:00 pm

With its exotic scales and rhythms, the music of Hungary has long has an outsize influence on the music of Europe. Composers, native and non- have brought the music of the peasantry, the Roma, and other influences as well to the concert stage. We take a look at some of the music of this relatively small nation with the music of Bartok, Kodaly, Liszt, Brahms, Berlioz, Tchaikovsky and others on this week's program.

Mozart's Attic 10:00 pm Thanksgiving Evening

The cycle of the nine Beethoven symphonies recorded by Arturo Toscanini and the NBC Symphony Orchestra for the then-new high fidelity vinyl phonograph records concludes this week with Number 9 in D minor.

And for something completely different, an overture to a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta, a ballet by Gounod, and some heroic music for organ and brasses are also scheduled.
