The Dutch Schubert Foundation

The Schubert Stichting (the Dutch Schubert Foundation) has announced its homepage, at which you'll find information about the Schubert Masterclass (held since 1995, for young professional singers and pianists) and the Foundation's concerts, lectures and twice-yearly newsletter. The site is available in Dutch and English language versions.



Classical music in Brazil is known as 'Erudito', and light-classical music is termed 'Semi-erudito' ... if you're unfamiliar with the genre, it could be worth visiting Luiza Azevedo's site which distributes CDs of alternative Brazilian music. There's music here by Brazilian composers, produced independently, often by universities and music schools, and the CDs tend to be inexpensive to buy. To find the contemporary and classical CD page, click on CDs (top left) and then select Semi-Erudito Erudito e Contemporaneo Brasileiro. There doesn't appear to be an English language version of this page.


Carlos Kleiber

Conductor Carlos Kleiber appears to have cancelled all his November and December concerts recently. You may be able to find out more by keeping an eye on the Unofficial Erich and Carlos Kleiber page maintained by Toru Hirasawa (in English and Japanese).


Animals' Christmas

If you're looking for Christmas presents, it might be worth considering Jimmy Webb's cantata of the Nativity story told from the perspective of the animals on the scene. It's being released on CD, performed by Art Garfunkel, Amy Grant and the London Symphony Orchestra, and information is available on the Art Garfunkel website.
