Performances of the Year, 2018

Anniversaries too often prove a lazy way to programme. Sometimes, though, especially in the case of composers in need of rediscovery, they afford excellent opportunities. Such has been in the case of Karlheinz Stockhausen, latterly overlooked in favour of other post-war avant gardists. His ninetieth birthday has brought forth a number of outstanding performances. (One excellent thing about Stockhausen’s music in performance is the consistently high quality of performance. Either you can ...

In Search of the Origin of “Silent Night”

Silent nights are an uncommon occurrence in The Big Apple, but on a frosty evening in late November, a group of people are gathered at a Colonial-Era churchyard cemetery on the grounds of New York City’s Trinity Church. There’s a nip in the air, but it has zero effect on the feeling of warmth and fellowship amongst the crowd standing under the bright lights of the giant towers of the city’s Financial District. On this night, Lower Manhattan’s nocturnal cacophony of howling sirens, honking car h...

The Tradition of the Christmas Crèche

When asked about the origin of these old folk customs, one sometimes finds it hard to answer. They have come down to us through the centu­ries out of the gray past. Some are so old that they go back to pre-Christian times, having been baptized together with the people and turned from pagan into Christian customs. But, once in a while, we know how one or another custom originated. The Christmas crib, as we have it today, goes back to St. Francis of Assisi. Not that he was the one who made the fir...

Most beautiful breweries in Europe

Back before the global craft beer craze, opening a brewery was quite a rare and monumental event, often necessitating an entire warehouse, a wing inside a monastery, or a full city block. Those who started the breweries of Bavaria, Belgium, and elsewhere in Europe may not have foreseen their brewhouses becoming architectural staples — but, fortunately, society tends to love historical buildings about as much as it loves beer. By visiting these gorgeous European breweries, you can get your fix...

The Sound of Music in Salzburg

I strolled around the Mirabell Gardens killing a little time before it was time to board the Sound of Music bus. It was the perfect weather at the end of May. I sat down by the Pegasus statue looking up at the Hohensalzburg Fortress in the distance. The dwarf garden lay to my right, famous for its statues of little people who starred in the Sound of Music movie during the do-re-mi montage of musical scenes. It feels tempting to skip through the ornate garden singing along to the movie soundtrack...

St. Wolfgang and the Church the Devil Built

October 31 does not receive much attention as a saint’s feast day in the United States. The ostentatious festivities of Halloween are, of course, difficult to compete with—as is the Holy Day it vigils. Besides being a night of merry devilry and the eve of All Saints’ Day, October 31 commemorates the feast of one saint who, like ancient Halloween traditions, juggled evil to good purpose. Similarly, as Halloween’s liturgy has been overshadowed by its lore, so has the life of this saint been oversh...
