Hi Board,
I thought I would post a link to a web site that I have become aware of. I hope it's ok to do so. It's a disscussion blog on all sorts of classical music topics. You don't have to join but are free to comment and enter the discussions.The topics are by a professor at the University of Chicago and can be interesting disscussions.

I performed the Stravinsky Three Pieces in one of his classes as a guest last winter and gave a short presentation on Stravinsky's clarinet writting playing excerpts from Firebird, Petroushka, and the Ebony Concerto....it was loads of fun.

Anyways, I thought I would share it with all of you in case any of you are interested.

Thanks for the link, it looks interesting.

While we're on the topic, I'd also like to share with everyone the National Arts Orchestra Podcast. The host is Christopher Millard, Principal bassoonist of the NACO. He discusses some very interesting topics; one of my favourites is his "Do we really need conductors" podcast, and he proves his point by conducting a funny experiment.

Anyway, enjoy!

I played with Chris at the Scotia Festival in the late 80's - awesome player.
