Fun times around here. Tonight I’m going to hear Forecast Music’s Moonstruck show at the Community Arts Cafe – a program matching excerpts from Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire with new works by Aaron Gervais, Kenneth Frazelle, Mark Engebretson, and Eric Schwartz. Saturday night I’ll hear the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet in a piece by Finnish composer Kalevi Aho. But I’m really here to tell you about the Toy Stories show next Wednesday night at DROM in NYC. Ransom Wilson will lead Le Train Bleu in music by Thomas Adès, Matt Marks, Eric Nathan and me. The great ticket deal for there is here.
