This week we’re joined by composer, interdisciplinary collaborator and taco enthusiast Steven Snowden. He’s doing more cool stuff than we could talk about in an hour (so we took a bit longer). PLUS-Seattle gets a labor deal and Boston has a new conductor.
- This week, we’re joined by composer, interdisciplinary collaborator, and taco enthusiast Steven Snowden.
- He takes time out from his Fulbright work in Portugal to chat with the panel about his residency in Hong Kong, the Fast Forward Austin Music Festival, using blogs to organize new works, and riding his Harley with Gabriel Prokofiev.
- In orchestra news, Seattle avoids a work stoppage through 2015. Also, the Boston Symphony announces Andris Nelsons will replace James Levine as music director.
- In tech news: Google jumps into the stream with Google Play Music All Access (or All Access if you’re not into the whole brevity thing), Amazon’s desktop cloud player is small and cool (but still has crappy metadata for classical music), AND Rhapsody has vowed to fix crappy metadata for classical music.
- The music world says goodbye to American composer Harold Shapero (1920-2013).
