This week’s topics include:

  • Creditors are calling the Detroit Symphony. They’d really like their $54 million back.
  • Meanwhile, the DSO has given one final offer to the musicians. If the sides cannot agree on some version of this proposal, the season will likely be cancelled.
  • On his blog this week, Eric Whitacre posted some of John Mackey’s thoughts and experiences on self-publishing.
  • NewMusicBox’s Rob Deemer has been happy to find some such self-publishing composers to include in an anthology he’s compiling of music by composers born after 1960.
  • The New World Symphony opened a beautiful new hall this week with the premiere of a new work by Thomas Adès.
  • The New York Philharmonic has announced their next season, including a rare performance of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Gruppen for three orchestras!
