In Other Blogs …

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.

I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
