“There is something about music that keeps its distance even at the moment that it engulfs us. It is at the same time outside and away from us and inside and part of us. In one sense it dwarfs us, and in another we master it. We are led on and on, and yet in some strange way we never lose control.” - Aaron Copland



What's love got to do with it?

I'm thrilled to be going to the Metropolitan Opera this Saturday (February 14th) to see the new production of Tchaikovsky's "Iolanta" and Bartók's "Bluebeard's Castle" from backstage, inside the production booth, and from behind an HD camera.  Each offers a different perpective on love.  Here's a preview:

Lent 4

The Fourth Sunday in Lent is often celebrated as “Laetare” Sunday, from the opening words of the Latin introit for the day.  “Laetare” means “rejoice,” and music for this day will provide a brief respite from Lenten introspection and reflection.
