Mozart Madness to Air January 25 through 27 on TheClassicalStation.org

WAKE FOREST, N.C. (January 17, 2007)—William Woltz, music director for WCPE, TheClassicalStation.org, announces today that the station is offering Mozart Madness the weekend of January 25 in recognition of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s birthday.

The weekend radio festival will capture the full range of Mozart’s compositions, beginning at 8 a.m. ET on January 25 with “Overture to the Marriage of Figaro.” Weekend offerings will include symphonies, concertos, quartets and sonatas. On Mozart’s birthday, January 27, the station’s Great Sacred Music program will feature Mozart’s “Requiem.”

“This year Mozart Madness is an audience participation event,” says Woltz. “Our three-day festival takes in an All-Request Friday and the Saturday Evening Request Program. Our listeners get to choose the works by the Eternal Child, Mozart, that we will air.”

In 1990, a group of psychologists studied Mozart’s written personal history and labeled him as “pathologically optimistic.” WCPE’s Mozart Madness weekend will explore – through music – his exuberance and hope, even when composing during times of personal hardship and despair.

Of particular interest are an All Request Friday from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. ET and the Saturday Evening Request Program from 6 p.m. until midnight ET. Both of these programs allow listeners to choose their favorite works to be aired. Requests can be made via the Web site at TheClassicalStation.org/request.shtml, by calling the station at 1-800-556-5178 or locally calling (919) 556-5178. Requests can be made in advance or during the programs.

WCPE’s live broadcast of Great Classical Music, 24 Hours A Day can be accessed around the globe in several ways; on-line streaming in multiple formats, including IPv6, local cable television systems and traditional radio broadcasting. A complete list of the ways WCPE is available with instructions for cable and satellite reception can be found at TheClassicalStation.org/listen.shtml.

In central North Carolina and southern Virginia, WCPE is found on the radio at 89.7 FM.

Cimarosa and Perugini: Echoes of Mozart in "Il Matrimonio Segreto" release
Consider the stamina shown just over 230 years ago in Vienna, when after listening to a three-hour opera (presumably plus a pause between the two acts) Leopold II ordered the work to be repeated in its entirety after an interval for supper. Assuming at least an hour for this (probably longer), the evening’s entertainment must have extended over about nine hours – almost awe-inspiring in this sound-bite era of ours.
A new CD release: Symphonies by Leopold Mozart
The rehabilitation of Mozart père, as man, has been going on for some time. His presentation in many popular accounts of the life of Wolfgang Amadeus, as callously exploitative and autocratic, as embittered by jealousy of his son’s genius, has been at the very least tempered, if not entirely refuted, by modern scholarship. We are in a better position, now, to recognise why, at the time of his death, his
