I love Kimiko Ishizaka's Goldberg Variations!

Today was an exciting day, as we released Kimiko's recording of the Goldberg Variations to the general public. For the past 20 months, this piece has consumed my existence, musically. Not only have I heard its many stages of development in Kimiko's hands, through numerous concerts, long hours of practice, and the five-day recording session in Berlin, but I've also scrutinized over a dozen other recordings of the piece by the great masters of the ages.

Music Notation on the Internet: My article in the International Arts Manager magazine

on Fri, 04/20/2012 - 19:36

This month's issue of the International Arts Manager features an article that I wrote lamenting the state of music notation on the internet. When notation can be represented in text formats (such as MusicXML), why can't we display it in the browser, copy and paste it from website to website, and expect the browser to be able to render it? For that matter, why can't we ask the browser to simply play a C#? The internet is broken when it comes to music notation.
