And now for a word from our guest blogger. This is Anne Midgette, finally getting to fulfill my long-held desire to blog, but for an unfortunate reason. Greg broke his leg on Sunday (he slipped on the ice on our front steps in New York), is going into surgery today (Tuesday), and will be out of commission for a few days (it was a nasty break). He wanted me to let everyone know why he won’t be able to post or respond to comments for a while. I guess one could say that this week, for the purposes of this blog, the future of classical music is – on ice.
