Menotti

From a posting to the VOX email list:https://i1.wp.com/www.cs.princeton.edu/~san/menotti.jpg

The excellent Schirmer web site (www.schirmer.com/composers/menotti/bio.html) shows the preparations in 2011 for the Menotti centenary, and the excitement has been building.    But alas, apparently it is not to be—the grand old man, who is visiting Monte Carlo for a current production, has apparently fallen gravely ill, according to the religious who are tending him.

So, by Friday I will put together something—I am missing Goya itself (on its way) and some other key works. But we’ll have at least one VOX premiere (The Consul), and can build from there. And, if there is a miraculous recovery, we can credit the good will of our fantastic VOX listeners!

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Maestro Menotti!
