The League of American Orchestras has published a list of 165 premieres that North American orchestras have given or will give in the 2012-13 season,.... Joshua Smith, the dapper principal flutist of the Cleveland Orchestra, has set up a Kickstarter page in support of recordings from the Happy Dog, Cleveland's alternative home for classical performance .... The greatly gifted Augustin Hadelich plays the Sibelius Violin Concerto with the New Jersey this week.... Make Music Winter, the cold-season counterpart to Make Music NY, has announced this year's events. Phil Kline returns with more migratory boombox music, James Holt reprises his deeply charming Bach-on-the-subway concept (this time the G, not the F), and Christopher Dylan Herbert, formerly connected with the Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency's Integrated Crisis Early Warning System, sings Winterreise in the botanical gardens of Brooklyn and Staten Island.... I've updated my CD Picks. The Joyce DiDonato disc will be near or at the top of my best-of-the-year list; her Sunday recital at Carnegie was one of the great live events of the season. Most deservedly, she is Musical America's Vocalist of the Year.... I neglected to mention, in my anniversary post below, the centennial of Witold Lutosławski. Any excuse to focus attention on this twentieth-century master is welcome. Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Philharmonia Orchestra have a site dedicated to their upcoming celebration, with videos about the composer's life; on Nov. 30, Salonen begins a parallel series with his old band, the LA Phil.
