Notations

4-4-2024

The moment Klaus Mäkelä was named music director designate of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra: “Many maestros would take the opportunity to wax a little eloquent before getting down to business; Mäkelä spoke for less than 20 seconds before raising his baton to start the rehearsal.”

27-3-2024

Cosmic continuity: today, Richard Serra died at the age of 85 at his home in Orient, New York, while a retrospective of Constantin Brâncuși’s work opened at the Centre Pompidou, Paris.

8-3-2024

The man who fell to earth: a 1999 BBC interview with David Bowie, in which he reminds us of the remarkable potential of the internet, among other things: “The monopolies do not have a monopoly — it’s an alien life form.”

15-1-2024

On books that matter: Christie’s auctions a 1555 edition of Andreas Vesalius’s De Humani Corporis Fabrica, featuring over one thousand marginal annotations in the author’s own hand. “This copy, whose annotations are the closest we can get to Vesalius’s thoughts in how he would conceive of a third edition, is a work entirely sine pari.” Bidding starts in two days.
