Wednesday Miscellany, Take Two

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center has announced their 2007-2008 season. Do you realize that in one year Elliott Carter will be 100 years old? Wowza. To mark the occasion, CMS will present his five string quartets in January of 2008.. The season will also include works by Jennifer Higdon, Mario Davidovsky, Joan Tower (who is in residence with CMS), and the Benjamin Franklin. Well some people think that old five-movement string quartet is by him . . . Read here.

The following composers are up for Oscar next month: Gustavo Santaolalla (in the pic), Babel; Thomas Newman, The Good German; Philip Glass, Notes on a Scandal; Javier Navarrete, Pan’s Labyrinth; Alexandre Desplat, The Queen.  (In comments, I’m going to go a little off topic about the Oscars.)

Our pal Brian Sacawa saw ‘Concrete’ last week. Check out his review.

Michael Gordon’s Decasia is getting another run this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the Angel Orensanz Center for the Arts. Details here.

Things are quiet back here at the sweat shop. I feel a Composers Forum topic coming on though, so don’t get too comfy.

“…features an Elliott Carter 100th birthday bash…”

Bash Elliott Carter? Now that’s fun!
