The Times Does It Again

Or rather, they don't.

Once again, their year-end audio feature The Music They Made includes no one from the realm of the classical, and precious few from the jazz world. Montserrat Figueras, Sena Jurinac, and Salvatore Licitra, Lee Hoiby, Daniel Catan, and Peter Lieberson, Robert Tear, Eugene Fodor, Milton Babbitt, and many I didn't memorialize didn't rate a mention or a clip.

No one seems to remember that Milton Babbitt died in January.

Well, I do.

That makes two of us, and maybe BH makes three ...

I feel sure that BH remembers, because he and I talked about Babbitt during my visit to NYC almost 2 years ago.

I only found out this month that Boris Tishchenko died a little over a year ago. It's depressing that I didn't hear about it until now.

I am sorry - I don't know who he was. :(
