William Steinway's Diary, a blow-by-blow account of musical life from 1861 to 1896, is now online.... Here's a behind-the scenes video for the accurately named innova label.... In a video interview for the Danish label dacapo, Per Nørgård talks about he perusaded György Ligeti to listen to the late-Romantic visionary Rued Langgaard. (Thanks to Eduardo Fernandez.) ... Connoisseurs of fictional composers will be glad to find that Charles Jessold, the murderous hero of Wesley Stace's eponymous novel, has his own website.
