My week in René Pape; Susan Graham's French program

I just returned from Jordan Hall in Boston, where Susan Graham and Malcolm Martineau presented an intelligent program of exquisite French songs. Last week I was lucky to be in New York for the Toscanini tribute at Avery Fisher Hall, and in Miami for the Cleveland Orchestra's inaugural concert at Miami's Carnival Center, where the orchestra has launched a new subscription series.

Details to come. A bit of news: Susan Graham mentioned backstage that she will open the Boston Symphony's 2007-08 season this fall with Ravel's "Shéhérazade."

René replaces Renée

There are only two René(e)s I travel to see. Disappointment canceled.


The concert is completely sold out.


The AP report.

key words: renee fleming, rene pape, toscanini, new york philharmonic

Wow this is ugly . . .

. . . and the best thing on TV this year so far.

In other news, Renee Fleming has withdrawn from the New York Philharmonic's Toscanini concert on Tuesday due to illness. We wish her a speedy recovery!
