Speedlinking - 16 October 2008

Here are some recent links from around the web:
  • More classical music blogs that have recently come to my attention: Blogging the Opera, Capitol Opera's in-house production blog, Chamber Music Today, following numerous companies and stories across the chamber music world, and Chicken Scratch, the only opera blog currently known to be written by a chicken.
  • You're in Washington during the roaring 20's.  You need to hire the top accompanist in town.  Who do you call?  Why, Cecelia O'Dea, of course.
  • Drew McManus has just published in the 2008 Orchestra Website Review, with info on which orchestra sites are the most navigable and audience-friendly, as well as the ones that aren't making the grade.
  • Tapestry's Inside the New Works Studio has just published photos from its successful run of Opera Briefs 8.
  • Its recording season.  Which format do you choose for your publicity materials--CD or MP3? New Music Strategies helps you choose.
  • Jake Heggie, composer and pianist.  See Mark Swed's LA Times review of his recent performance with Frederica Von Stage at Santa Monica College.
