Classical Notes

In Our Concert Halls

Posted at 9:10 AM on July 7, 2006 by Rex Levang (1 Comments)

All the piano e-activity that you've read about gives me a chance to put in a plug for the auditorium where this current phase of the competition is happening -- the gracious Sundin Music Hall, which may be the best space that the Twin Cities have for chamber music. (Other nominees?)

On Tuesday, no less than Glenn Gould will be heard at Sundin. Gould, of course, has been dead for some years, but John Q. Walker is going to use some computer and robotics wizardry -- the same kind that puts the "e" into E-Competition -- to let his playing live again in this lecture-demonstration. This one's free, by the way.

Then it's off to Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis, where the wind-up of the competition morphs into the beginning of Sommerfest.

Nothing ever happens in the summertime, right?

Final post by me. And the winner is Tatiana Larionova!
