It's a sad day when the New York Philharmonic, that most professional of orchestras, engages a rank amateur as its spokesman. Mr. Baldwin's money and fame makes a fool of you. Does he really need this gig? Martin Bookspan looks better now than ever. He and Janet must be having a good laugh.

If a mid-20th century composer was lucky enough to get Jan De Gaetani to premiere a new work, it was almost a guarantee of a beautiful performance and a good review.
Her discography of American song with pianist Gilbert Kalish should be gone through in a complete broadcast rotation by WQXR.
