For the masochistic among us?

I would sometimes be annoyed if the only review in Fanfare of a disc I was interested in was by LRB.  Well, the blog is free...

I now feel the same way about Huntley Duntley or Dentley Hentely or whatever his name is, though if he ever gets a blog I'll endeavor to forget that fact.

The absolute worst was - ditto MWeb - when they let some buffoon write anonymously (because he felt "too important in the industry" to reveal his name). Byzantion was his nome de plume on one of these platforms. Anonymity encourages the worst in us as is, and that person had plenty far to go, in that direction.

nor in competing for the favor of wayward friends.

Not a blog, but a very interesting analysis: Novelty and influence of creative works, and quantifying patterns of advances based on probabilistic references networks.
Here is a graph with influece of single composers hilighting shifts from period to period:

Wait, do you know who Byzantion was? I only ask because, before he "disappeared" from MusicWeb, he once got drunk and sent me a 1 a.m. message which read in its entirety, "Brian you're a knob." (sic)

Nathalie Stutzmann named new music director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Quite interesting! I still have high hopes for the ASO. Hopefully, she is given the kind of prominence that Yoel Levi was given in the past. This orchestra needed some new blood disparately as Spano's tenure with the orchestra was, in my view, unexciting. I make no bones about the ASO being in a current state of stagnation. Anyway, this is good news for a change.

As an outsider, I did feel a bit like the orchestra was marking time with Spano. I didn't find his guest turn with the BSO much of anything.

I would love to share my blog with all of you. You can find the link in my signature and profile. Here's an article I wrote on the history of LvB's string quartets that I am particularly proud of. Comments and opinions welcome.

"Tis said, that art is long, and life but fleeting:—Nay; life is long, and brief the span of art; If e're her breath vouchsafes with gods a meeting, A moment's favor 'tis of which we've had a part." -Beethoven - Conversation Book, March 1820
