This week’s panel:
This week’s topics include:
- MUSIC IS HARD! Meet the new addition to the SoundNotion network.
- In an open letter to mayor Bloomberg, Alan Pierson offers up the Brooklyn Philharmonic to pinch hit for the financially strapped New York Philharmonic in the city’s tradition free concerts in the parks.
- David Smooke uses advanced gibberish in his new “nonopera.”
- NPR picks the top 25 classical albums of the year (so far). WHAT! Only two new recordings of Bach? Outrageous.
- True Rosaschi talks truth and consequences for the audio snob in the time of audio compression.
- The panel discusses the new look at NewMusicBox. NICE GAMS!
[CORRECTION]: At around 8:40 in this episode, we incorrectly state that the Brooklyn Philharmonic had lost its non-profit status. It was, in fact, the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra, a local community orchestra, who had lost non-profit status by failing to file certain paperwork with the IRS. We regret the error and apologize for the confusion. Thanks to Steve Doyle for catching us!
