    The Nerd Behind the Mask

    Departing From Recipe - Philip Glass Writes the Best of Music and the Worst of Music

    It is an article of faith among us new-music types that music should appeal to large audiences, and not only to experts and cognoscenti. We get a little offended, though, when composers take that too literally. We've never quite forgiven Cornelius Ca...

    My best friend, Lindsey, was obsessed with "Jolene" as a child and used to sneak drawing pictures of Jolene in class with a fellow nine-year-old. They were fascinated by what Jolene could possibly have looked like if she could take the indubitably fo...

    Detroit What?

    Growing up outside of Detroit in the '80s, we suburban post-punk rap-o-philes wondered how a city that was 80 percent black and hella-urban with its crack epidemic and larger-than-life dealers (the Chambers Brothers, White Boy Rick) and gangs (Errol ...

    Go Tell It on the Mountain - David Wares Quartet Demands Overstatement

    Let's be bold: The David S. Ware Quartet is the best small band in jazz today. I realize that I will almost certainly hear another quartet, or trio or quintet or octet, this week or next, that will make me want to backpedal. But every time I see Ware...

    Music Afraid to Be Heard - Lincoln Center Offers an Elegant Enigma

    Of all the composers in Europe, few would have been more interesting for the Lincoln Center Festival to bring in than Salvatore Sciarrino. He was certainly a relief from the aging Boulez-Stockhausen-Kagel crowd, who even today still dominate that con...
