Serial Underground at Cornelia St. Cafe Monday

Just a reminder that two of S21's favorite pianists are on the Serial Underground program this coming Monday at 8:30 at the Cornelia St. Cafe: our lady-of-the-obscure-Russian-Composers, Jenny Lin, and our man at Banglewood, David Hanlon. Click here for the details. I'll have to stay home grading counterpoint though.
Unhappy the Land That Needs a Hero

It's hard to focus on something as seemingly frivolous as music when so many of our fellow Americans are still reeling in misery from the ravages of a great storm and criminal neglect. But, eventually, once the flood waters have dried and large areas of Mississippi and Alabama have been re-built, and all the political cover-ups have been spun, and New Orleans rediscovers its groove, composers and other artists will respond to this tragedy the only way they know how--by creating music and art. As Pliable reminds us below, it has always been so and that, in itself, is a kind of testament to the durability of the human spirit. Read Everette Minchew's eyewitness account of Katrina.
East Anglia 1953 - New Orleans 2005

Britten´┐Żs church parable Curlew River was premiered in 1964 in Orford Church, Suffolk, on the East Anglian coast (the image to the right is from the original production). Eleven years earlier, on the night of 31st January 1953, Suffolk, and the whole of East Anglia, had suffered one of the worst floods in living memory, and one of the biggest environmental disasters ever to have occurred in the UK.

As we struggle to absorb the enormity of the New Orleans tragedy On An Overgrown Path reflects on the 1953 disaster. And highlights some lessons that may have been lost over the intervening years.
Apocalypse Now

The management of the Louisiana Philharmonic has launched a web site for its players and their families. If you know of any job openings or can help (or just want to leave your condolences), please take a look. Drew McManus has also opened up his blog as a clearinghouse for information about the orchestra's musicians. And, read Lawrence Dillon's blog today. It's important.
Only in New York

Got together today at noon with David Salvage and Galen Brown, whom I'd never met, for a quick iced latte at the Sequenza21 office, conveniently located in front of the Starbucks next door to me on 57th Street between Eighth and Ninth. We're opining away when a nice little guy in a NYPD cap at the next table chimes in. Turns out to be Maury Yeston, the former head of the undergraduate music program at Yale, who is perhaps best known for composing the Broadway musicals Titanic, Nine, and Grand Hotel. It reminded me a bit of that wonderful scene in Annie Hall when Woody Allen said "I happen to have Marshall McLuhan right over here...Corey Dargel couldn't make our little gathering because of wedding. Phil Kline (Zippo Songs, Unsilent Night) got married today to babelicious music publicist Aleba Gartner.

In further news from the domestic front, Lawrence Dillon continues to discover the joys of fatherhood and Katrina refugee Alan Theisen is working on some definitions of FEMA.
