Last weekend I played for George Crumb in Media, PA; it was just a lovely afternoon, talking about all kinds of things from the Second Viennese School to the pros and cons of iTunes. George is a dream to work with.
Next week I’m performing at Buffalo alone and with friends. With my wonderful colleagues Tony Arnold, Alex Hurd, and Alison d’Amato, I’m doing a charming piece by John Musto, and I’ll also be performing the Crumb solo pieces which I’ll be recording for Bridge Records the week after.
This week in my course it’s all about Strauss’s Salome. The Decca recording with Birgit Nilsson, WOW.
