Well Hello Again

Superconductor is back from vacation.
by Paul J. Pelkonen

In case you haven't noticed, this blog has been quiet. Very quiet. I gave myself two weeks of vacation, badly needed. We go back into business tomorrow, with two performances in the city: the MET Orchestra at Carnegie Hall and Das Rheingold with Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic.



Yes, I had a nice holiday, working for two weeks at an event in Maryland. Although I brought scores and headphones and music, my days and nights were otherwise occupied. However, there will be some recording reviews coming up in the next few weeks, with symphony cycles from Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Andris Nelsons at the fore.

There's also the forthcoming Memories of the Gilbert Administration, our post commemorating Alan Gilbert's eight years at the helm of the New York Philharmonic. Summer festival previews are also on the horizon as we prepare for the slightly less hectic festival season.

Thank you all for your patience.

Critical Thinking in the Cheap Seats

Since 2007, Superconductor has grown from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around NYC, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate NY. I am a freelance writer living and working in Brooklyn NY. And no, I'm not a conductor.
