Naxos - Happy Anniversary

I celebrated the 20th Anniversary of Naxos Records, in the morning I interviewed Klaus Heymann, the founder (pictured right); and in the evening joined 150 or so musicians and friends at Steinway Hall. Marin Alsop, William Bolcom and Klaus spoke; Phillipe Quint (pictured left) played some Rozsa, Ravel and Gershwin.
It was wonderful to see composers Ellen Zwilich, John Corigliano, Avner Dorman, Mark Adamo; conductors Jose Serebrier, JoAnn Falletta; and performers Mark O'Connor, Joan Morris, Carole Farley and Michael Ludwig. Industry people included Mark Berry, Frank Oteri, Trudi Chan, Sarah Baird, and Genevieve Spielberg.

Wish I was there! Congrats to Klaus and Naxos for 20 years! We have some interesting projects of Zwilich, Vivaldi and Leroy Anderson coming out soon, and it looks like it was a marvelous party at Steinway Hall! Greetings from Knoxville, Jeffrey Biegel
