Wagner Shouldn’t Make His Influences So Obvious.

Seriously, though. I’m watching the Levine/Met production of Das Rheingold from 1990. It’s not as good as the Boulez/Chéreau production from Bayreuth.



I’m Back, Baby!

It’s been a long time since I posted on here. I guess my life went through a whirlwind of changes when I got back from Vienna. To make a long story short, I now live in Columbia, Missouri and am working on my Masters in Music History.

I’m playing some Scriabin, Mozart and Liszt on the piano right now. I’m trying to decide which Liszt piece I want to do- there are two from Années de Pélerinage.

I’ve been working on a research project about Mahler that will ultimately lead to my masters thesis being about Mahler and eschatology. Definitely enjoying that work.

It’s late and I need to go to bed. Just thought it would be a good idea to get back in the habit of posting. Look for another, more interesting, post very soon.
