Well this is my first blog entry on WQXR.org. And I want to hear from you.
What was the first live classical concert in New York that you attended? Do you remember?
My first was one I was in--performing with Peter Schickele. He has a great comedy piece for orchestra called NEW HORIZON’S IN MUSIC APPRECIATON, which is basically the first Movement of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, announced as a sportscast! It is classic PDQ Bach.
Peter hired me to play the Color Commentator for a live performance at Carnegie Hall. Please let me know about your first New York concert experience.
