Writing program notes

I've always been a stickler about college-level students being able to write good program notes. Some of them succeed and go on to write in an engaging and informative style, some of them get bogged down in wooden prose, and others, well, let's hope they don't copy anything from the next time around.

Enter Adam Baratz, who takes the art of program notes to the next level with this eloquent, candid and highly original offering from his recent senior recital at Eastman.

For those interested in writing program notes but don't know where to start, take a look at Writing Concert Program Notes by J. Michael Allsen at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
