Today I realized that the Super Bowl was two weeks ago, and since that post Classically Speaking has been quiet. A bit too quiet.
Mendelssohn turned 200!
So did Lincoln!
the winners of the classical Grammy Awards were announced
we made the Chocolate Challenge goal (thank you!)
On the radio, we’ve been digging into some new recordings, including music by Satie, Mozart, Devienne, and Corigliano.
Also, the Vienna Piano Trio visited Charleston, the Huntington Symphony called on some eligible bachelors of 19th century music, the Wheeling Symphony looked to Motown, while the WV Symphony turned to Broadway, and pianist Evan Mack brought an American music recital to Marshall.
And...I have a present for you, but it's in the next post!
