This week’s topics include:
  • A cell phone goes off during the New York Philharmonic’s recent performance of Mahler’s Ninth Symphony. We’re sure you heard about it.
  • Can you guess the Strad? The panel discusses Deceptive Cadence’s latest game while trying to come to a conclusion about the famous luthier’s craftsmanship. Frank Almond takes issue with a recent experiment, as well.
  • A newly discovered Brahms piece will get its premiere on BBC’s Radio 3, January 21st. Is this something to get excited about? You might be surprised by our responses.
  • Frank J. Oteri wonders about the merits of size and how large scale works are typically seen as the pinnacle of musical creation. (It’s how you use it…right? RIGHT?!)
