  • I heard John Harbison’s Requiem performed live at its world premiere in Boston conducted by Bernard Haitink. I was INCREDIBLY IMPRESSED with the work, and were it not for a business trip that took me out of town on the last night it was to be performed, I would have heard it a second time because it made that much of an impression on me (which does happen on occasion with new music, although most of the time the impression is often neutral or not infrequently negative–which is all but guaranteed if the work is atonal).

    This is really GREAT NEWS, and long overdue! Congratulations to the Nashville Symphony, and above all else to John Harbison.
