There's really nothing quite so enticing as a beautiful text by Shakespeare, set to music.

Andris Nelsons generates new excitement every time he he steps up to the podium in Boston. But who's going to stir things up now that he's leaving Birmingham? Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla, that's who!

Take a moment to salute the great Bach today. No, not THAT great Bach!  We’re celebrating Carl Philipp Emanuel, born on March 8, 1714, the 2nd surviving son of Johann Sebastian.  Mozart is quoted as saying “Bach is the father.  We are the Children!”  And he meant C.P.E., whose reputation overshadowed his dad’s.

Imagine yourself sitting in church - and someone is reading from the bible -

“And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.”
