There are days (many) when I wish I lived in New York. For instance:

One simple reason that Stravinsky, who died at 88 in 1971, is still waiting for his due is that audiences seldom get to hear the full range of his work. So give Isaiah Sheffer, the artistic director of Symphony Space, credit for rectifying things with the free, 12-hour “Wall to Wall Stravinsky” marathon on Saturday. Some 55 Stravinsky works were performed by 323 participating artists, including 4 orchestras, 2 choruses, 16 chamber ensembles, 16 pianists, 15 vocalists and, amazingly, 18 bassoonists.
