When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.
The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For close to 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.
Tuesday Evening Classics - Mark Ferraguto on Beethoven
Music scholar, and new Hartt faculty member, Mark Ferraguto, will join host David Schonfeld at about 6:00 on Tuesday, August 28 to talk about his research. Mark is a keyboard player (organ, harpsichord, piano) and recently completed his doctoral dissertation on the orchestral music of Beethoven, focusing on Symphony No. 4.
Mark will provide numerous recorded examples to illustrate his points. Tune in for a fresh look at Beethoven as well as several other composers.
Before Mark arrives, David will play a sixth rendition, by Andreas Staier and recently acquired by WWUH, of Bach's Aria with 30 Variations, the masterpiece David has been spotlighting on his summer broadcasts.
