In a recent column on Mieczysław Weinberg, I mentioned the composer's score for Vinni-Pukh, the Soviet cartoon version of Winnie-the-Pooh. This same music, in an arrangement by Lev Zhurbin, will appear on a Nov. 3 program by the Brooklyn Phil, focusing on Russian cartoon scores. Shostakovich's The Silly Little Mouse is also featured.... The great experimental composer Alvin Lucier recently retired from Wesleyan University after teaching there for forty years. The college will host a major celebration of his work on Nov. 4-6.... The fierce-fingered pianist Lisa Moore will play at Roulette on Nov. 16, marking the release of two records on Cantaloupe: Caprichos Enfáticos, by her husband, Martin Bresnick; and Annie Gosfield's Lightning Slingers and Dead Ringers, which is paired with the same composer's Brooklyn Dodgers tribute, Brooklyn, October 5, 1941 (for piano with baseballs and catcher's mitt).... The Oregon Symphony Spring for Music program that I and others raved about last spring is now on CD.... The new season of the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra, in Philadelphia, begins on Nov. 5, with a program of Sibelius, Piazzolla, and Beethoven.... A Halloween special: Pierrot Lunaire Meets Teletubbies. Three people sent me a link to this; it must have my name written on it, which is unsettling.
