The more the merrier

For the longest time, I have been wanting to go down to hear the National Symphony Orchestra in the District. I’ve heard them once before, but that was when I had just flown into Dulles from a trip to Africa and I was so stupefied by jetlag that while my two companions – the late […]

That elusive quality

By Judith Krummeck | Posted in Host Blogs | No Comments

Stage presence is such an elusive quality that it seems almost magical at times. Some people – my father was one of them in his acting days – can be put down in the middle of a stage with nothing to do, and they still manage to look perfectly at home. The American Dramatic soprano, […]

The Finnish Connection

By Judith Krummeck | Posted in Host Blogs | No Comments

If ever proof was needed that musicians perform the music of their native countries with special insight, the Finnish conductor, Hannu Lintu, provided that proof with Sibelius’s 2nd Symphony this weekend. Also on the BSO program were Tchaikovsky’s Francesca da Rimini and Liszt’s Piano Concerto with soloist Stephen Hough (the reserve of the English pianist […]

I celebrated the end of the drive by going to hear Beethoven’s Erioica with the BSO on Saturday evening. Two debuts: the German violinist, Kolja Blacher, playing Schumann’s […]

By Judith Krummeck | Posted in Host Blogs | 3 Comments

WBJC’s web maestra, Diana Ross, has suggested that we blog about a Top 5 list of some kind, so here I go with my top 5 favorite instruments: Cello, because it sounds so luscious and sonorous. It has its limitations, to be sure—the cellists can’t stand for the National Anthem at the opening of the […]

Unspoiled by fame

By Judith Krummeck | Posted in Host Blogs, Interviews | No Comments

  This CD cover, with Gil Shaham on the left, exactly conjures up the eagerness and fervent communication that are so much a part of his gorgeous music making, and which I now know are just as vivid in person.  Every interview is special in its own way but I have to say that, of […]

Gotta run!

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | No Comments

I love running, but I don’t do a lot of races. Usually, I just pop out the door of our house, often accompanied by Jim, & make my way through various Baltimore neighborhoods. I’m not fast & probably never will be; burning calories & staying in shape are more important to me than winning medals. […]

A gala event

By Judith Krummeck | Posted in Host Blogs | No Comments

Never mind Shakespeare’s play within a play in Hamlet, on Saturday night WBJC had a party within a party at the BSO’s Opening Gala. In a corner of the lavish tent adjacent to the Meyerhof, making a discreet rumpus, could be found Mark Malinowski wearing one of his signature bow ties and an unostentatious lapel […]
