Live George Benjamin

Who among us would not want to be at the Aix-en-Provence Festival? Since the press announcement landed in my in-box at the beginning of this year, I’ve thought about it every day. The pleasure of attendance would be two-fold: to enjoy great music in a beautiful locale, and to know that I had achieved some success in life that would allow me to enjoy great music in a beautiful locale. Perhaps, someday …

But until then I, and you, can tune into Saturday, 11:00am EST. No misprint, because the world premiere of George Benjamin’s Written on Skin begins at that time in Aix-en-Provence, and it will be streaming at the site. And catch the New York Philharmonic 360 program while you’re at it.
