A Couple of Other Things:  I meant to mention this earlier this week but kept putting it off because I found it just too depressing.  Dawn Upshaw has breast cancer.   

Anybody here speak PHP?  I mean, know it really cold.  If you don’t know what that means, don’t apply, but if you’re the dude (or dudette), send me an e-mail.  We could use a template tweak or two.

    I was at Tower a week ago Friday. I picked up a DVD on Kurtag, some Schutz, Marco Stroppa, and Bridge’s fantastic Peter Lieberson CD witih his late wife. Even though Tower and Lorraine Hunt Lieberson can not longer recover, let us hope Dawn Upshaw does.

    P.S. One of the Tower supervisors told me that the one of the higher-ups at the Lincoln Center store is trying to gather inverstors for a Jazz/Classical/World music store in the neighborhood. Sounds pretty idealistic to me, but there’s always hope.

    David, I hope that you’ve also saved some of your hard earned income for Lorraine’s upcoming recording, on Nonesuch, of Peter’s Neruda Songs (to complement the Rilke Songs on Bridge). You may already have a review copy.

    Do not even mention the possibility of Dawn not recovering …
