Subject: Calleja at Le Poisson Rouge and Upshaw at Tufts

Remarkably no one has mentioned that the recital going on at 7:30 tonight in 
New York at Le Poisson Rouge is being shown live on video through NPR.  I 
tried WCRB here in Boston - it should be available for anyone to watch.

BTW last week- on October 20, I attended a wonderful recital by Dawn 
Upshaw. I am sure that she was mentioned recently in connection with 
postings on De Gaetani.  It was at nearby Tufts University (only minutes from 
Arlington).  There was no printed program as such.  She and pianist 
collaborator Gilbert Kalish announced and described the selections before 
performing them.  She sang songs by Ives, Schumann (including Widming) and 
Schubert -also some of the Nursery Songs of Mousorgsky.  

Debussy's Arriettes Oubliees also were on the program, and a piece by Ruth 
Crawford Seeger.  Kalish played the Alcott movement form the Concord 
Sonata and  a Brahms Intermezzo.  The program lasted 2 and a half hours and 
the open seating arrangement meant that we could sit in the very front row of 
the beautiful Distler Performance  Hall of the Granoff Music Center.  

She looked like the Dawn Upshaw of old- her voice just as unmistakeable and 
beautiful as ever.  She communicates easily - no affectations, no pretense.  
Everything she sang was special to us because it was special to her.

Tommorrow Marcus Haddock gives a master class at the New England 
Conservatory and very soon Christine Brewer will begin a three-day residency 
at the Boston Conservatory.

Thank heavens for the schools in Boston - so many good things going on all 
the time.

Angelo from Boston
