harbingers of heat: Tanglewood 2012

That's heat as in "wouldn't it be nice if we had some". But never mind. It will be February already in a little over two hours, and you know what that means: packets of tomato seeds on the kitchen counter and summer schedules tossed in over the transom. 

Tanglewood's a bit thin on the vocal side this year, but what there is is La Damnation de Faust with Susan Graham, Paul Groves, and Willard White on July 28th; Gerald Finley doing a recital on August 2nd, then Mozart arias and Ravel's Don Quichotte à Dulcinée the following night; Karina Gauvin pops in for a Bach cantata on August 22nd; the 25th has Falla's La Vida Breve with a long list of people I'm too lazy to type, but here are the details, and the 26th has a Beethoven 9 with Meredith Arwady, Frank Lopardo and John Relyea on August 26th. Frankly, if it weren't for the people involved, it would all be a bit zzzzzzzzzzzzz....

On the other hand, Sequentia brings The Rheingold Curse, in Old Norse with English supertitles, to Ozawa Hall on July 12. It's where the cool kids will be.
