I finally got to see Lang Lang live!

At long last, I got a chance to see Lang Lang, perhaps the world's most celebrated classical music mega-star, play live at the Schnitz on Thursday night. My review can be seen here at Oregon Music News.

Reel Music Festival 2011 preview of 'The Turandot Project' up at OMN

At Oregon Music News I previewed a film that will be showing at the Reel Music Festival on Monday, January 10th at 7pm. For those of you who won't be glued to the TV watching the Ducks play for the national championship, 'The Turandot Project' should prove a worthwhile alternative. Zubin Mehta and Zhang Yimou give an intimate glimpse into the inner workings of an immense production of Puccini's Turandot in Beijing's Forbidden City.
