Franz Liszt transcribed all nine Beethoven symphonies for solo piano, and although he was known to perform at least some of them in concert, they were published with the amateur pianist in mind.

Just how many amateurs were actually capable of playing them is open to question. Listen to the Symphony No. 7 this Thursday and see what you think. After that, we'll have music from the Italian Baroque, and we'll conclude with a virtuoso work for cello by 20th-century Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodaly.

A lot of great bands started in a garage.  The Velvet Underground, The Clash and Nirvana just to name a few.
 
This month WFIT 89.5 FM is looking for the next great garage band on the Space Coast.

John Lodge will discuss life with the Moody Blues, his recent solo album 10,00 Light Years and his upcoming concert at the King Center on February 3.

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.
