This morning I sat down to talk with Peter Elliot, a friend and former neighbor of the late composer David Diamond’s.  At Jines on Park Avenue (with the fabulous mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe eating breakfast only a few tables away!) Peter pulled out a white plastic bag stuffed with treasures: a whimsical letter from David to his kid brother (see picture below), the first Diamond LP he owned, and a fistful of old photos of the composer spending time with the Elliot family on Edgerton Street.

During my sojourn to Copland House, I talked with pianist and Artistic and Executive Director Michael Boriskin. In this podcast, you'll hear the story of how a grassroots movement saved Aaron Copland's house, how the composer thought to honor his favorite teacher in his garden, and how the house serves to promote the creation of new music.

I recently made a pilgrimage to the Copland House north of New York City.  It's pretty much as he left it: simple, rustic, and woodsy.  A little musty.  Watch this space for more, including an interview with the composer-in-residence, Stephen Snowden, and enjoy this scrapbook.

Dear Classical 91.5 AND Downton Abbey fans,

You would think walking into the Metropolitan Opera House would be a serene experience.  But not this past weekend.  A double bill of Tchaikovsky’s “Iolanta” and Bartok’s “Bluebeard’s Castle” had been already canceled because of a blizzard warning.
