Tonight I'm giving my second talk on Russian Music - as part of the Friends of Frederickson Library series on Russia. The focus is on Stravinsky and Shostakovich. I'll throw in a few others for comparison, but the "Mighty Two" will be the major composers.
Stravinsky has been in my mind lately, discussions with friends, some plans and dreams I've been having. A good sign I hope!
Shostakovich's 100th birthday would have been in 2006, get ready for cake next September!
Didn't get to go the the Blogger's meetup Tuesday, I had a rehearsal that went longer (and very well thank goodness) than I thought it would...we had scheduled it after I had RSVP'd yes. Maybe this next month!
[insider info: closer to that 100th blog milepost!]
