Inquiries from my Inbox: Vicki writes, "Later next month I am performing 'Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso' by Saint-Saens with my youth orchestra. However, I cannot find any information about the piece itself, only a biography of Saint-Saens. Could you please direct me to a source?"
 
Random Musical Thought: Composer Ned Rorem says, "Arguably, no artist grows up: If he sheds the perceptions of childhood, he ceases being an artist."
 
A conversation about Franz Clement and the classical period with British musicologist Clive Brown, editor of the modern performing edition of the Clement's Violin Concerto in D Major.  The Clement Concerto is on my new CD, "Beethoven and Clement Violin Concertos" with Maestro Jose Serebrier and the Royal Philharmonic. Clement's beautiful concerto was written one year before Beethoven's. The two concertos share the same key, instrumentation, length, aesthetic and many of the exact same figurations.
