Things to Do While Going Out of Your Mind With the Heat

If you can’t enjoy the classic bourgeois pleasures of a country house and/or foreign travel when the sun rushes down at you and the ozone makes your throat ache, you can at least dream the dream in reality, so to speak. My friends at have created a new version of their mobile app, dedicated to the great summer festivals like Aix-en-Provence, Verbier and Salzburg. Just like their current app, it connects your iPhone and/or iPad to live and streaming performances of classical music. You get the most content with a paid membership (a great value), but the app connects you to a free performance per day. Go someplace with it.

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.
