  • Do you know the story about what happened to Joseph Haydn‘s skull? (more…)
  • Florida State University‘s College of Music has received a special estate gift from retired businessman Albert Cohen, to the tune of 5.6 million dollars. The gift establishes the “Albert H. Cohen Endowed Fund for Excellence in Baroque Music Performance and Scholarship,” and is a reference to Cohen’s love of J.S. Bach. (more…)
  • Classical music writer Tom Service takes serious offense at transforming Bach into pop, especially when it involves the final chorus of the St. Matthew Passion. (more…)
