  1. The Power of Performance: Impressions on Stephen Coombs' Glazunov Project, Part I

  2. Tchaikovsky, New Philharmonia Orchestra, Riccardo Muti ‎– Symphony No.1 In G Minor

    December has been here for two weeks already and we here in Ottawa have yet to experience “winter weather”.

    November is a month I usually reserve on this and my other platforms for remembering those we have lost. This is the first of two posts on the Tuesday Blog underscoring the passing of great musicians.
