Built more than 200 years ago, the Siena Pianoforte was once a treasure of King Umberto of Italy. Eventually it was more or less forgotten, and it turned up -- trashed -- in  World War II North Africa when Rommel's troops withdrew. It was repaired, pressed into service for the British troops, sold to a junk  dealer, and abused for a few years until it was rescued from the Tel Aviv dump, after having served as just about everything but a doghouse --- and maybe even that!

Harvest Records recording artists Matt and Kim will be in WFIT's studios Friday at 1:00 for a live interview with Sound Waves host Todd Kennedy.  Matt and Kim will perform live at Florida Tech's Homecoming Fest later that evening in Downtown Melbourne.

Some of the most elegant music of the Baroque era came not from Bach, nor Handel, nor even Vivaldi. Jean-Phillippe Rameau, working at the Parisian stage and the court of Louis XV, was a pre-eminent practitioner of the 18th-century French style -- a style that wOULD end by the time of the Revolution. Rameau was then pretty much forgotten until the baroque revival of the 20th century.

We'll hear some of Rameau's French elegance -- and then some Victorian and Edwardian elegance from Sir Edward Elgar.
