It's day three of the U.S Open, and warming up on court for our Showdown are three classical music stars who also happen to be tennis fans: Mitusko Uchida, Yannick Nezet-Seguin and Itzhak Perlman (When Nezet-Seguin met Rafael Nadal a few years ago, he was delighted to find out that Nadal’s grandfather is a conductor!)

You Chose Itzhak Perlman:

Itzhak Perlman: 40.8%

Mitsuko Uchida: 33.5%

Yannick Nezet-Seguin: 27.5%

Go Roger!

No disrespect meant to Lenny Kravitz, but why doesn't the USTA go bold at the US Open for once instead of taking a page from the Super Bowl half time show, which is to hire a loud pop group to entertain the audience. This is NYC. Can't the NY Phil or a few Met Opera singers be squeezed in to the festivities? Must all sporting events be homongenized?

I love the colors and textures of this piece. I'm always listening for something that creates an alternate reality when I'm working. This piece will take you elsewhere.
