Very busy ... end of 2nd quarter ... but

  • A quick editorial (in French) of Geneva's developments at the OSR
  • I recommend "Serving Genius", a biography of Carlo Maria Giulini. It does a great job of describing Giulini's formative years and also analyses well the wonderful conductor musical style. I was not aware that Giulini was born in the Nothern Italy which is so close from Austria. No wonder he was equally at home in Mahler and Verdi. How do we miss such an outstanding musician and how glad am I to have heard him on such great masterpieces.
  • Finally, there is a strong interview of John Adams in the Guardian. Recommended and I was not aware he was so found of West Side Story.
