A Life in Haydn

Some people have a hidden life. I came upon an article in which Hungarian conductor Adam Fischer talked about having a “Haydn life.”

Memories to the Max

I can’t believe it. Max is 80! It almost seemed like yesterday that he was here, sitting in the studio and chatting with me.

Name a Järvi

It’s a convenient and logical thing for listeners to do, particularly listeners who are new to classical music.  They associate the names of conductors with orchestras or ensembles, for example Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic or Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. It seems to bring a little order to the world of classical music that’s heavily populated with the names of composers and performers. 

There’s just a bit of a problem with that.

Greetings from Johann Sebastian Beach!
