    RIP JEANNE MOREAU!!!!!! :(((((((((

  • I miss the variety shows a lot. Steve Allen had one of the most interesting and intelligent of them all.

  • Newsflash: Philippe Jordan has just been announced as the next music director of Wiener Staatsoper, starting September 2020 when the new Intendant comes in. He is currently at Bayreuth conducting the new “Meistersinger.”

        Jordan conducted the Capriccio in Vienna which
        featured Renee Fleming -- and has been conducting the Vienna Symphony. He is only 41 -- interesting choice. I was kind of hoping the new direction would
        bring back Welser-Moest but Jordan seems to have been working his way up from Ulm (one of von
        Karajan’s first stations prior to Aachen). Let’s wish
        Jordan every success in a job fraught with musical
        politics (historically).
