The LA Phil will unfurl a very attractive-looking Green Umbrella on Tuesday, Oct. 4: Zosha Di Castri's La forma dello spazio, Feldman's Viola in My Life 1 and 2, Takemitsu's Rain Coming, and Georg Friedrich Haas's chants oubliés. Writes Haas: "The title refers to late works by Franz Liszt (Valses oubliés, Romance oubliée) – Liszt’s technique of presenting one-part melodies in a different sound environment (often that of the piano) is applied here to the possibilities of the chamber orchestra." ... John Adams, who is overseeing Green Umbrella as LA Phil's Creative Chair (a great season overall), also has a lovely piece on Mahler in the New York Times Book Review.... The new building of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest is named after György Ligeti.... The Red Light New Ensemble opens its season on Monday night with a "Music as a Map" program.... For some years now, Gotham Early Music Scene has been fighting to change the widespread impression that New York's early-music community lacks lustre in comparison with Boston's or the Bay Area's, not to mention scenes in a dozen European cities. They're making headway, as sampler concerts this weekend should testify.... Scandal! Anne Midgette has got into a public dispute with Plácido Domingo.... My American Musicological Society post below inspired Will Robin to start a "fake AMS" game on Twitter, the results of which are summarized on NewMusicBox. All this is good-natured fun — I have deep respect for so many brilliant scholars out there, and Will is himself a musicology grad student.... I saw Radiohead on Thursday night at Roseland. Three random notes: 1) I'd never noticed that one of Jonny Greenwood's ondes Martenot lines in "The National Anthem" seems to quote the Andante sostenuto theme from the second movement of Sibelius's Second (see 4:08); 2) yes, that's the voice of WNYC's beloved new-music advocate John Schaefer on Jonny's radio in the first minute — talk about Soundcheck!; 3) the version of "Bloom" that opened the show was one the most awesome things I've heard them do, a swirling juggernaut.
