Great divide for black composersGreat divide for black composers
Why do black composers remain on the outskirts of classical music? Along with broader societal prejudices, there are also factors exclusive to the classical world. Past musicians like James P. Johnson and Duke Ellington, who wrote symphonic works alongside playing stride piano and leading a big band, are typically confined to the jazz canon. Black composers have been criticized in both African-American and white intellectual circles for refusing to embrace mainstream commercial trends.

The Metropolitan Opera, which has been threatening to lock out its workers if they do not agree to concessions, has set a new deadline for reaching an agreement with its unions. The company’s new deadline was announced with two of the biggest unions at the opera house: Local 802 of the American Federation of Musicians, which represents the orchestra, and the American Guild of Musical Artists, which represents the chorus, singers, stage directors and others.

Violinist playing during own brain surgery
A musician recently played the violin while — wait for it — having brain surgery. By playing his violin during a brain operation, professional violinist Roger Frisch was able to guide his surgeons toward the segment of his brain where a misfiring signal was causing his hands to break out periodically in rhythmic shaking. The surgery, called deep brain stimulation, involved doctors implanting a tiny electrode into Frisch's brain that blocks the tremor by delivering a zap of electricity to the part of the brain that was signaling in error.
