The end of 2005 marks the conclusion of the first year of this blog, which has certainly taught me a lot about new music and the world, in the process taking me on an infinite number of curves. That makes it an inescapably appropriate time for the ubiquitous nostalgic assessment of the twelve months gone by.
January – Blog launched on January 2nd.
February – premiere of Revenant for Horn and Orchestra, with David Jolley as the soloist and yours truly conducting and writing the review.
July – A chance to reflect on the composer’s role in society
August – Stephen James Dillon arrives, a bit late, much like his father in many ways. He’ll probably have his own blog going before long — his first word was “google.”
December – A summary of the year gone by.
It’s been a fun year for me here at S21. Here’s wishing you all a peaceful and productive 2006.
