In the first hour, there will be a rare broadcast of Hubert Parry's Symphony No. 1 in G-Major which has not been played on WTJU since we started keeping records And after that, we'll hear a short work by Anton Bruckner - really! Such things do exist!
After 7 am, the emphasis is on sweet, melodious music. We have a superb clarinet concerto by Franz Anton Hoffmeister, an Impromptu by Vorisek and a remarkable serenade by Johann Hummel.
And after 8 o'clock, we'll hear some exquisite music by two composers wrongly thought to be fierce rivals who were in fact friends: Mozart and Salieri.
In reality, Antonio Salieri was one of the few mourners who attended Mozart's sparse funeral and later trained Mozart's son, Franz Xaver, as a musician. We'll hear music by both of them as well as a violin concerto by Johann Stamitz and a piano sonata by Haydn.
So do join me, as ever, for Vivace, Friday morning, 6-9 am, on WTJU-Charlottesville, 91.1 FM for three hours of Vivacious fun!
You can also replay the program anytime from the WTJU archives. The program will be available for replay through 9/12/13
