Welcome to the blogosphere, Steven Blier! His first post is full of the inside details of singing, wit and a love of music – that’s the man himself … and thank you Emily Mandel, I need to fill in my own gaps on this reading list, because I don’t have enough to keep me up all night in despair already … Steven Mackey has two new recordings out, read a little bit about him in my column on the electric guitar in classical music … David Brooks’ response to this great, damning article was that, since universities run sports programs in immoral, exploitative ways, student-athletes should not be compensated and everything should remain as it is … the Boston Symphony could use David Zinman, but should choose Jeffrey Milarsky … food for thought about technically difficult music from eighth blackbird … and NPR makes it easy to indulge in some eternally great American music.
