Wednesday Miscellany

Violinist Anne Akiko Meyers is putting on a haiku contest, via Facebook; yes, I forwarded the press releases to Patrick other violin news, Lara St. John, about whom I blogged long ago, and her brother Scott St. John, have a new recording of two Mozart Sinfonia Concertante, recorded with The Knights. Unfortunately, the press release doesn't include a URL for the recording, so I'm linking to her home page....

The Hot Air Music Festival presents Musical Textual: Where Music and Text Combine, on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 21 and 22, 7:30 p.m. both days, at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. No link yet, but the program's tasty: Elliott Carter's song cycle A Mirror on Which to Dwell and a new fully-staged song cycle by Wolfgang Thompson and Matthew Cmiel. The price is also right: $10 advance/$15 door; advance purchase via Brown Paper Tickets.

A plea to publicists: could you possibly put the important information in the body of email rather than in a separate PDF? And include links? And make the links obvious and hard to miss?

Even more violin/new music news: the intrepid Cornelius Duffalo, of ETHEL and Ne(x)tworks, continues his Journaling series in New York City, with a program on August 15, 2010, at The Stone in NYC. He's playing music by ijay Iyer, Joan Jeanrenaud, Kenji Bunch, Paola Prestini and Daniel Felsenfeld....looking at The Stone's August schedule, I see that pianist Sarah Cahill is also playing there, on August 3.
