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 and the NPR Music App.

Last week's program featured  Carl Orff's settings of verses from the medieval manuscripts known as the Carmina Burana, in which the 20th-century German composer was able to evoke the spirit of the middle ages in a modern work for orchestra, chorus, and soloists. This week we'll go back to the  original tablature of eleventh- through thirteenth-century pieces and some realizations of how this music might have sounded a thousand years ago.

NASH Live @ The King Center

"Java" John Goldacker 1/14/15

My very first concert at The King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne, Florida was David Crosby & Graham Nash almost exactly 23 years ago, on January 17th, 1992. It was a magical night at the King Center that night, as was last night with Graham Nash.
