I went to the Philadelphia Orchestra’s performance of Rite of Spring looking to recreate my youthful excitement about the work. Instead I found a circus.
Concerts, events, & travel
Posts about concerts and events I’ve attended or participated in, and traveling I’ve done
While in Barcelona, I was interviewed for Ràdio Web MACBA, the online radio program of the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA). It was an interesting experience and is available online now.
I’ll be giving my talk on “John Cage’s silent piece(s)” (as heard in Buenos Aires and Barcelona) on Saturday, 3 November in Philadelphia, as part of the festival “Cage: Beyond Silence”.
I just returned from Barcelona, where I participated in another John Cage centennial festival.
I was in Buenos Aires a couple of weeks ago for a festival celebrating Cage’s 100th birthday. It was sponsored by the Teatro Colón and the Fundacion Proa.
We were in DC and visited the Rothko show at the National Gallery of Art. It’s a must-see.
