Foolish love + MORE

After all the horror and trauma of 2016, a double suicide honestly sounds like the perfect way to end the year. Well, at least the Metropolitan Opera agrees with me; and so the company ushers out this wretched year and rings in the new with an elegant and effective new production of Charles Gounod.... More »

With a program of Paul Hindemith’s When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d: A Requiem for those we love (never performed before by the NSO) and Felix Mendelssohn’s Violin

It no longer is an enemy before which I flee, but an object wholly indifferent and unessential to which I can turn without fear or pain; therefore, even without any real disgust.
