I have a couple of First-Four-Notes-related articles up this weekend:
On Beethoven's Fifth and other warhorses.
Boston Globe, November 18, 2012.
Five Books Inspired by Beethoven's Fifth.
Publisher's Weekly, November 16, 2012.
Also, this, which I forgot to link to earlier this week:
Reviewing the Boston Modern Orchestra Project and Tippett's The Midsummer Marriage.
Musical America, November 13, 2012.
I will once again, and with pleasure, acknowledge this blog's debt to Tippett's opera.
