Mozart's Attic - Thursday 10:00pm

Oct 29, 2014

Mozart's Attic opens with Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, the mid-point in our cycle of the nine Beethoven Symphonies as recorded by Arturo Toscanini more than 60 years ago at the dawn of the vinyl LP era. Toscanini shines in this performance.

Other scheduled works include some dances and chamber music from 1600s England, Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, a fugal concerto by Gustav Holst, and a performance of Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms to wrap it all up.

FM Odyssey's Halloween Show was preempted due to transmitter issues. If you would like to hear this GREAT edition of FM Odyssey, here is the link to listen online.

Mozart's Attic2

Sep 9, 2014

Tonight on Mozart’s Attic: Selections from the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach will be featured this week.

The blank book was a present from Johann Sebastian Bach to his wife in which she could copy down some of her favorite pieces written by her husband, by members of her extended family, and by some of the other composers of the day.

It was a scrapbook, and it gives a glimpse of what an evening's relaxation might have been like in the notoriously busy Bach household.
