- This week on SoundNotion, the panel is joined by The Cavell Reed Trio with their second album Dialogue (being released soon). Until then, try their first release on for size.
- The Cavell Trio is Shelly Meggison-oboe, Osiris Molina-clarinet, and Jenny Mann-bassoon.
- The album was recorded at the University of Alabama by Sergei Kvitko of Blue Griffin Recording. Special shout out to Sergei this week. His work has appeared on past picks of the week, and he never fails to impress.
- Clarinet virtuoso Martin Fröst has a new clarinet feature/dancing/lighting effects/variety mashup … umm. Just take a look. It’s called Dollhouse.
- The Met has settled all of its union labor issues. Can we talk about them in terms of music only for a while?
- The new teen love film If I Stay digitally grafts Chloë Moretz’s head onto a cello players body for the best fake instrument playing you’ll ever see.
