As you may have noticed, I’ve been on hiatus — an unexpected and unintended hiatus. I’ll spare you the details; sometimes life just gets in the way. It’s a shame because I’ve missed the chance to comment on all sorts of noteworthy things (e.g. the Minnesota Orchestra’s continued perils, Vasily Petrenko‘s rather unfortunate comments about male vs. female musicians, and much more).
That said, even though I haven’t posted anything to All is Yar in a while, I’ve still been attending concerts and doing some writing (albeit a little disjointed and unfinalized, hence the lack of posts). I’m also planning on attending and reviewing the upcoming launches of the 2013-2014 season by the various local classical music organizations, big and small.
I hate to let the unpublished writing I’ve done go to waste, but at the same time, I want to move forward. What to do, what to do . . .
The solution, I’ve decided, is to more or less alternate between publishing new stories with old ones, kind of like Christopher Nolan’s narrative in Memento — but without the confusion, not to mention the alternating color vs. black-and-white imagery. And to keep things as clear as possible, I’m going to do something I’ve avoided up until now: backdate posts for older reviews based on when I began writing about a specific concert.
Posts will be coming daily (if not more frequently) for the forseeable future, so sit back, relax, and enjoy what’s coming down the pipe.
It’s good to be back.
