This week's Vivace: Not just for humans!

This Friday, Vivace will open with two long works:  Max Reger's Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Beethoven, and the Serenade No. 1 by Mozart. 

At 7 am, we will celebrate the birthday of the German-Swedish composer, Joseph Martin Kraus, with his viola concerto.

At about 7:30 am, we have a special treat for your four-legged furry friends:  It's National Take Your Dog to Work Day, and we'll have almost half an hour of calming music specially designed to please those of a canine or feline persuasion.

Dioji will join me in the studio

After 8 am, we'll celebrate another birthday, that of Jacques Offenbach with a surprising work, one of his Suites for Two Cellos, and we'll end with a rarely-heard piano concerto composed by Beethoven when he was only 13.

As ever, I hope you (and your four-legged companion) will join me for Vivace, 6-9 am on Friday morning, right here on WTJU-Charlottesville.
