When is a trumpet like a motorcycle in a dressage event? How many Brunhilde's does it take to change an Elektra? Just two of the many questions you've been dying to ask, to which you will find answers in a 24th annual combined December/January issue – in which our 11 beat columnists sift through what's on offer in the upcoming holiday month, and what they're already circling in their calendars for 2019. Oh, and features too: a klezmer violinist breathing new life into a very old film; two New Music festivals in January, 200 metres apart; a Music & Health story on the restorative powers of a grassroots exercise in collective music-making; even a good reason to go to Winnipeg in the dead of winter. All this and more in Vol 24 No 4, now available in flipthrough format here.

One such artist, the poet Michael McClure, introduced us around the time the picture was made. It all happened in his studio in Berkeley one morning very early. Amy McClure has told me of his passion for practicing many hours everyday so when I arrived it was no surprise to see him behind his piano finishing up a new composition before heading to his ranch in the Sierras with his wife.” — Chris Felver 18 ON OUR COVER | In With the New - Timeless Terry Riley; Sea change at 21C | WENDE BARTLEY 78 MUSIC AND HEALTH | Recollectiv’s Restorative Mission | VIVIEN FELLEGI 80 WE ARE ALL MUSIC’S CHILDEN | December / January’s Child | MJ BUELL 99 REARVIEW MIRROR | TSO: Crises Weathered, Challenges Ahead | ROBERT HARRIS 16 ACD2 2780 MÉLISANDE McNABNEY harpsichord Cavatine Debussy | Poulenc | Françaix Kœchlin | Messiaen ACD2 2787 CAMERON CROZMAN cello PHILIP CHIU piano TO BE RELEASED JANUARY 25, 2019 G R I G O R I A N .
