A final indignity for the misbegotten protest against The Death of Klinghoffer: as Michael Cooper reports in the New York Times, ticket sales at the Met, initially sluggish, have picked up as a result of all the media coverage. In what amounts to a final ruling on the matter, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg went to see the opera and found nothing anti-Semitic in it.... Disturbing: the pianist Dejan Lazic has asked that an Anne Midgette review of one of his recitals be removed from the Internet, under the EU's "right to be forgotten" ruling... A fairly mouth-watering lineup for the Huddersfield Festival later this month: the SEM Ensemble pays tribute to Christian Wolff, Feldman's multi-piano pieces receive rare performances, and James Dillon is celebrated, among much else.... On Nov. 1, wild Up plays at the Colburn in LA: works of Steve Mackey, Kate Moore, Derek Bermel, and Ted Hearne.... ASCAP will soon hand out its annual Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson prizes; I'm proud to see Will Robin, my former assistant, receive recognition for his NewMusicBox article “Shape Notes, Billings, and American Modernisms." Will has a piece in the Sunday Times about Irving Fine. Other worthy honorees include Annegret Fauser, for Sounds of War, and Terry Teachout, for Duke.... This is the last weekend to see In the Garden of Sonic Delights, Caramoor's celebration of sound art.... On Nov. 7-8, the Kitchen will present a production of Originale, Stockhausen's 1961 "happening," in association with Analog Arts, the Goethe Institute, and Darmstadt Essential Repertoire. The distinguished and provocative cast includes the poet Eileen Myles, the downtown luminary Justin Vivian Bond, and the pianist Stephen Drury. There are some wonderful images of the 1961 New York production at the Analog Arts website, including David Tudor in drag.... Also new from Analog Arts, a loadbang album featuring Eve Beglarian's Island of the Sirens, Hannah Lash's Stoned Prince, Andy Akiho's Six Haikus, and Paul Pinto's g3db.Did0 (goodbye, Dido). On Nov. 5 there will be a release event at Greenwich House Music School.... Two striking visual representations of the state of classical music: Ricky O'Bannon's charts of American orchestral repertory, and Suby Raman's graphs detailing the neglect of living composers at the Met.
