2 Guys 1 Flute | J.S. Bach Badineri


I check emusic.com for new things on occasion. I just checked and saw what appeared to be some oboe music, and included the name William Bennett. Turns out it was not the San Francisco Symphony oboist William Bennett, but the flutist, William Bennett. (Someone once emailed me to say I didn’t know what I was talking about by saying William Bennett played oboe. I was careful not to say he didn’t know what he was talking about by saying William Bennett was a flutist. Whew! I’m glad I didn’t embarrass myself.)

I think I’ll download the two disk set in any case, since it also features Nicholas Daniel, and it’s Debussy & Saint Saëns, Complete Chamber Music for Woodwinds.

Hmmm. First I considered a job with Chicago Symphony. And now? How about classical music editor?

Of course it says “piano skills” … and I’ve sort of lost any skill I had. But still, maybe this is for me? I am flexible, and I do have a cooperative attitude.

When I feel like it.

But it’s in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I’m not quite ready to relocate.

Gramophone is putting all of its archives online. I read it here first.

Gramophone is the world’s best classical music magazine. How do I know that? Well, when I googled it the very first link told me so. That’s how. ;-)

I do look forward to checking out those archives!
