Bea pays homage to the late Gordon Willis.
All praise to NewMusicBox, which goes from strength to strength: Heather Stebbins's posts from Estonia, Tim Rutherford-Johnson on new music and globalization, Eugene Birman on the Minnesota Orchestra Composer Institute.... LA's Jacaranda goes British-Irish this weekend, with a program of Adès, Barry, and Peter Maxwell Davies (his Vesalii Icones).... Another strong editorial from the Overgrown Path: "Stop trying to serve everybody, instead just serve the music."... The Walden School, a celebrated summer program for young musicians and composers, hosts an event at NYC's Greenwich House tomorrow, with premières by alumni composers and Sky Macklay and Paul Moravec moderating .... Read Gavin Borchert on the Ives Fourth in Seattle.... An interesting new site: 21CM, the DePauw University School of Music's resource for professional and aspiring musicians.... It's Riccardo Muti Day on WFMT. Earlier, Muti spoke to Andrew Patner in advance of a slew of Chicago appearances and of the Chicago Symphony's Carnegie Hall residency, in which the maestro indulges his love of Scriabin.
