As Much Awesome As Possible

After a truly fabulous end-of-the-season run (our first pledge drive! MATA and VOX and Wordless, oh my!), I am taking a little June hiatus to go concertize and record around Europe. Rest assured, I'll be reporting back with exclusive videos and anecdotes from various projects, (cough, Nico Muhly's first opera, cough), so I won't be divorced from planet Q2, but I figured I'd take this week to play some of my favorite things (in Oprah's absence). One of these, apparently, is absurd overuse of parenthetical phrases in writing (I could switch to footnotes? Something something David Foster Wallace).

There will be Messiaen's Turangalila-Symphonie. There will be Boulez's RĂ©pons. This week will have as much awesome as possible. This is a good week.

I will miss you guys! But I'll keep up, maybe I'll write postcards? (OMG, I'm gonna write postcards!) Happy summer!! Meanwhile, let's all think about how amazing it would have been to be at this thing.

You mean Nico Muhly has TWO operas up his sleeve? I was recently in Philadelphia, and walked by the Academy of Music and saw the list for next season for the Opera Company of Philadelphia, for DARK SISTERS by Nico Muhly in June 2012 (a co-commission with Gotham Chamber Opera--so presumably it will also be in NYC next year). But I see from the link Nadia posted that his "first" opera, TWO BOYS, will premiere in England later this month. Well, we new the boy's prolific!
