8-4-14 Word On Wine Review…Bulgaria!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

When I think of Bulgaria I think of great opera singers, some very nice people I’ve met over the years and truthfully not much else!  In terms of wine Bulgaria was like all the other Soviet block countries…All about quantity!  The various government wine collectives produced endless amounts of mediocre wine to satisfy their Soviet […]

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Music In Maryland | No Comments

This week David Zinman announced that he would be retiring from his position as Music Director of the Tonhalle Orchestra in Zurich.  I thought we would use this occasion to play some of the live recordings that he made during his 13 year tenure as Music Director of the Baltimore Symphony.  Frankly these were great […]

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Music In Maryland | No Comments

This week Music in Maryland features the Post Classical Ensemble’s latest CD Dvorak and America.  This is a unique blend of music and poetry combining Longfellow’s Hiawatha and Dvorak’s New World Symphony and other pieces.  The resulting ‘melodrama’ is most intriguing.  If that weren’t enough we added some other selections from the CD and also […]
