A blasphemous work by a composer named on a red scare blacklist.

Or a profound ecumenical work by one of the greatest American musicians of the 20th century

Leonard Bernstein’s Mass elicited both opinions at its high-profile debut in 1971. Nowadays we wonder what all the fuss was about.

Decide for yourself as we hear the original recording this week, up in the attic.

Erik Satie

This week we take a look at some music with roots in Yemen, Morocco, Sudan,  and Sephardic Spain -- some ancient, some contemporary.

Then we devote the second half of the program to the world premiere recording of a major piano work by Erik Satie, written in 1892, played at its debut in that year, and possibly unperformed again for nearly a hundred years..

It all promises to make for a most unusual evening up in the Attic.
