Me on the Diane Rehm show

This is happening tomorrow, Tuesday, 7/22. The Diane Rehm Show is a top NPR offering, broadcast from Washington, DC. I’ll be in the studio, talking about the future of classical music with quite a distinguished group of colleagues — Alex Ross, the pianist Orli Shaham, and Fred Bronstein, who as CEO of the St. Louis Symphony helped pull the orchestra out of some difficulty, and now runs one of the leading US conservatories, the Peabody Institute in Baltimore.

I think that guarantees four good points of view, coming from four kinds of knowledge and experience.

Diane Rehm

The show is broadcast live on WAMU in DC, from 10 AM to noon. The future of classical music discussion will start at 11. Diane Rehm is syndicated throughout the country, but starting at many different times. To find the show in your area, go here.

I’m looking forward to this. From discussions like this one, you never know what you’re going to learn. I know Alex and Orli, and I’m eager to get to know Bronstein, whom I’ve never met, and who now works just up Route 95 from me.

    I was a little disappointed with the discussion. Seemed like you and Alex Ross got to some of the important issues at the outset…but the host seemed uninterested in pursuing them further. The rest of the talk seemed rushed and…blah, blah, blah.

    BTW, Classical music is not alive & well. And I’d love to hear more Joseph Horowitz on these issues.

    The discussion went nowhere .. a total
    waste of time– unfortunately one could have predicted the outcome ….
