Mimi Ezust asks:
>What are the pieces of music we have sought out more than five times in
>the last year?
A difficult question to answer; it depends on the year (e.g., this year,
it would be Mahler 8, Shostakovich 5, the Beethoven Waldstein sonata and
the Stenhammar 1st Piano Concerto, inter alia). More or less every other
month is a high standard to meet, but my list of pieces that get revisited
several, if not five, times a year would be quite long. My listening
habits are like my traveling habits -- roughly equally balanced between
new and old destinations.
