Some new blogs

I don't have time to update my blogroll yet, but here are some music blogs that I have recently added to bloglines.

Non-Commutative Ramblings, by LPRcycle (to see why this name is funny, read my post on Neo-Riemannian theory). I think I know who this author is, but I'll certainly respect the desire for pseudonymity.

Classical Pontifications with Professor Heebie McJeebie
. Teaching out of the classic-in-a-brown-paper-bag Cadillac Hotel in Rochester, Professsor McJeebie reveals the truth about music academia.

Kenneth Woods, a young conductor in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Update: Allusive Listening. Daniel Shanahan, a music theory grad student in Dublin.

Contrasting Periods. Composer Mark Connor, writing from the mountains of North Carolina.

Thanks for the mention.

I’m touched to know I still qualify as a young conductor at 38. The definition of a young conductor has changed radically in the last 10 years. 50 used to be young and up-and-coming, now 25 is over the hill. I'm hoping that when I get to be 50 I can revert to being promising again.

Cheers

Hey, my wife is a beautiful young woman and the same age as you, so the adjective holds. "Promising" is always a problematic description. Too much pressure, plus a certain suggestiveness that the promise will be broken.

But I look forward to reading your blog regularly.

That's good- I'll take young now and aim for "emerging" or just "very famous" at 50.
