Today on the radio, I referred to a few of our older posts. You can always dig through our archives to find them, but I thought it would be nice to make them even easier to find.
* Idol and Glee: Not so original?
* September and October Classical Calendar
* Who is Suresh? (interview)
There’s a bit of a look back, but what does the future hold? I’m planning on some more interviews with musicians performing in West Virginia and some autumn classical favorites; we'll also have a guest post from Aran Jenkins about guitarist Julian Bream and Jim Lange will be posting an interview with Hans Zimmer.
Plus, we have interviews with Wheeling Symphony conductor Andre Raphel Smith and Antonio Salvatore, another conductor in Wheeling. I’ve also been saving an interview with WVU Composer-in-Residence John Beall.
I've also been thinking about trying a classical music movie club here. If you see a movie that relates to classical music -- let me know about it. If you write a bit about the movie, we can post comments here on Classically Speaking to share with others.
A few movies that have come up recently in conversation include: Amadeus, Lisztomania, The Red Violin, Tous les Matins du Monde, Fellini’s Orchestra Rehearsal, and Rhapsody. Any interesting classical music-related movies you've seen recently?
Not enough, you say? Well, we’re also working on a fun, interactive classical trivia quiz, which still needs a bit of work. And I’m sure there’s going to be more.
So stay tuned, I think this fall and winter are going to be a lot of fun.
