Just back from night two of Dudamania at Carnegie. (Thanks, Molly!) I am actually running up against a fast-approaching hard deadline trying to complete the music for my own orchestral debut, so for now at least, I will let Jon Stewart speak for me:
EDIT: And also Steve Smith. (The comment of mine that Steve references is that under Dudamel, Bartók's infamous pastiche of Shosta 7 was actually genuinely funny. This bit is, in my experience at least, never funny.)
A gentle reminder that our fall fundraiser is in full swing. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation.
