Classical Clubbing

September 30, 2013

A bassoonist friend of mine suggested that you all might be interested in this recent article by Sarah Robinson of Classical Revolution and noted critic Greg Sandow. It discusses a wide range of topics, but primarily focuses on how to adapt your music and performance style to different types of venues and the pros and cons of performing in alternative spaces.

Although things have been quiet around here recently, there are some exciting features that will be coming in the next few weeks, including an interview with a very special guest who will of great interest to most of you.

In the meantime, have some fun with this fantastic web page called “Boil The Frog”. It creates a playlist that will connect (almost) any two artists. For example, I’ve had great luck connecting Guillaume de Machaut to Katy Perry, and John Williams to the Pet Shop Boys. You can find it here:
