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.

From time to time, I catch myself listening to the Weekend Edition Sunday puzzle segment with puzzlemaster Will Shortz, the New York Times’ crossword puzzle editor.

That Number Again Is…!

Some of you may wonder if, after a fund drive, those of us who have repeated the pledge telephone number hundreds of times over the course of several days accidentally give that number instead of our own telephone numbers and follow it up by saying: “That number again is......!”

Four Years (No Foolin’!)

April 1 was the day we had our first Classic Morning, four years ago (no fooling!). We’ve had more than a thousand of them since!

Thinking Outside the Bachs

Spring officially arrives in March. So does Johann Sebastian Bach’s birthday – on March 21st.  The 2 events nearly coincide, and sometimes it seems it was destined to be that way.

It Must Be a Car Radio!

One of the traditional curiosities of radio listening is the appearance (and disappearance) of faraway stations.
