When in New York City....

...what would you go see next month, besides Stiffelio or Attila at the Met, depending on when I arrive? I expect I'll be in town for two or three weeks, on business.

Thinking of a possible trip to NY myself which in the end is not going to come off, I bookmarked this play (which closes Jan. 31, thus I guess before you're going) and this museum exhibit. To my tastes; I don't know if they'd be to yours.

Too much to list here! I'm sending you a note...

Thanks to both of you! Calimac, I'll probably miss "Zero Hour," but the Morgan is among my must-visit museums when I'm in NYC. My mother started taking me there when I was very young, which got me hooked. I've had many memorable experiences there; certainly one of the great ones was visiting with Joshua Rifkin and a bunch of Brandeis grad students to see the manuscript of "Winterreise." J. Rigby Turner, our personal guide, then started bringing out other scores. Some Mozart, some Mahler, the short score of "Fanciulla del West" (which says "La Girl" and has cigar burns and markings in orange crayon), followed by some meticulously calligraphed Stravinsky.

The Austen exhibit would totally interest me!

Bruce, thank you! A friend suggested the Xennakis exhibit at the Drawing Center, totally down my alley.

Well, I would suggest we meet Feb. 11 at Juilliard for the premiere of Carter's new wind quintet, Nine by Five. I asked Bruce if he was up for it, but I guess he's been too busy to reply ... ;)
