Welcome to our December/January issue as we turn the annual calendar page, halfway through our season for the 25th time, juggling as always, secular stuff, the spirit of the season, new year resolve and winter journeys! Why is Mozart's Handel's Messiah's trumpet a trombone? Why when Laurie Anderson offers to fly you to the moon you should take her up on the invitation. Why messing with Winterreisse can (sometimes) be a very good thing! And a bumper crop of record reviews for your reading (and sometimes listening) pleasure. Available in flipthrough here right now, and on stands commencing Thursday Nov 28. See you on the other side!

Toronto Symphony Orchestra PHOTO: JAG GUNDU FEATURES Photographer Jag Gundu has been working with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra for a number of years and says that things definitely have become easier over time as they get to know him, as trust gets built and his presence becomes part of the routine. During concerts he has to be very low-key and inconspicuous, keeping to the perimeter, so the options are more limited. But in rehearsal photos, like this one, it’s easy to get in very close without disrupting things. “Shooting while they are playing, whether in performance or rehearsal, is great because that way it’s all more natural. There’s a flow that really comes through.” the latest releases from ATMA Classique. 7 OPENER | Simple Gifts, Period | DAVID PERLMAN 8 BEHIND THE SCENES | And the Trombone Shall Sound? | GARY CORRIN 12 NEW MUSIC | Laurie Anderson and The Art of Falling | WENDALYN BARTLEY 16 TURNING POINTS | Cheryl Duvall | DAVID JAEGER 20 MUSICAL THEATRE | Bend It Like Beckham: The Musical | JENNIFER PARR 22 IN CONVERSATION | Pianist Lucas Debargue | PAUL ENNIS 77 WE ARE ALL MUSIC’S CHILDEN | MJ BUELL 102 REARVIEW MIRROR | Merry, Um, Holiday! | ROBERT HARRIS ACD2 2777 Les SONS et les parfums...
