1) Geoff Edgers is writing an arts blog at the Boston Globe. 2) Congratulations to Jeremy Eichler, who will succeed Richard Dyer as the Globe's chief critic. My alarmism of last year was unwarranted. 3) Ernst Toch's Gesprochene Musik, or Spoken Music, one of the great experiments of Weimar-era Berlin, is about to receive its first complete performance since 1930. It will be heard in June as part of a program by the Christopher Caines dance company, at New York's City Center. The final movement, "Geographical Fugue," is a longtime choral favorite; here's a rendition by the Lycoming College Choir.
