Any respectable attic should have lots of Christmas decorations and other holiday stuff.
Mozart's Attic sure does -- boxes and boxes of it. After all, this is the season that has inspired more composers than any other.
We begin this week's Attic with Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite and follow with music of Praetorius, Vaughan Williams, Ernest Bloch, a pair of early French Noel writers, and a number of composers whose names have been lost to time. We conclude with the Christmas Oratorio of Camille Saint-Saens.
