  1. I'm a huge Beatles fan-- so much of what they created was pure genius. George Martin was indeed "the fifth Beatle". I couldn't find the original studio recording online, but here's a live version of "Yesterday", a song that wouldn't be what it is without the addition of George's strings: "George Martin Dies: Paul McCartney Credits Producer with 'Yesterday' Success in Touching Tribute" by Lewis Dean on ibtimes.co.uk I wish I had been a fly on the wall during those recording sessions.
  2. I got a nonsensical email yesterday from one of my two big classical music friends (from Dallas) addressed to me and another guy in New York: "Now that the National Symphony has a real music director and and Citronelle has closed, when do we drink Krug?"

There's a good interview with Gould at about the 57:30 point that's well-worth listening to. Gould is noted for dismissing virtuoso pianists who "show off" as opposed to honoring the composer's intentions to the letter, which makes it
  5. To Lorin Maazel In the New York Times piece on his passing, it said, "He projected an image of an analytical intellectual "” he had studied mathematics and philosophy in college, was fluent in six languages (French, German, Portuguese, Spanish and Italian, as well as English) and kept up with many subjects outside music "” and his performances could seem coolly fastidious and emotionally distant. Yet such performances were regularly offset by others that were fiery and intensely personalized." My friends, Lorin Maazel was an intellect, but did not have an intellect's mindset. Certainly, he
