Many years ago I recall buying a bunch of rosé wines at a local shop and a fellow patron commented, “you like sweet stuff eh?” Actually I do like sweet stuff but every bottle I was buying was dry as a bone…as most rosé is. In past years our choices for rosé wines were rather […]
We have lots of fabulous performers in this area and we are presenting two excellent clarinetists this evening David Drosinos and Robert DiLutis. Just to keep things interesting I threw in a very nice performance by Peter Minkler and Lura Johnson of the Baltimore Symphony, a bit of Previn with the Poulenc Trio and a […]
The Markowitsch was $12.99 and the Perrin $11.99 They were both amazing. The Perrin a bit heavier. Here is the show…buy with your eyes closed.
A few weeks ago Kati Harrison and I had lunch with some lovely people from Georgia to discuss their very interesting wines. As you can see from the picture this wine has an amazing color! This comes from leaving their white wines with the skins. They also age their wines in Amphoras as opposed to […]
This week Baltimore is thrilled to have Gil Shaham in town to play Beethoven’s Violin Concerto with the Baltimore Symphony. I had the pleasure of interviewing him earlier in the week and he was a real mensch. It was also a good occasion to play four of his excellent recordings. Here is the interview! Here […]
This week we have the pleasure of having two fine panelists from the Occasional Symphony, their Artistic Director Joshua Hong and their Executive Director James Young. They were joined by stalwart veteran panelist Phil Greenfield from the American Record Guide. While the Strauss was pretty good, the rest of the pieces were fabulous. Nice to […]

This week we are playing recordings featuring violinist Vadim Gluzman who is performing Prokofiev’s second concerto with the Baltimore Symphony. You can catch his final performance at the Meyerhoff Sunday afternoon. He is also opening the Annapolis season in the Fall with the Shostakovich Second Concerto. I think that makes him more than worthy of this week’s […]
This week Mary and I are joined by Kati Harrison who, in addition to being WBJC’s Operations Director, also happens to be my wife…and I happen to be her husband! We figured that since I proposed on air a year ago in February (during a fundraiser) and we celebrated our real anniversary on 5/18 fundraising, […]
