Pick your quarantine house. Each house consists of composers, guest artists, principal musicians and guest soloists from the 20–21 season. This will be a tough one!
House 1 has some powerhouses of the Baroque through late Romantic eras, and have you seen Nemanja Radulović’s hair? It’s gotta have special powers. But this Leshnoff guy with a piece we haven’t heard before? Risky.
House 2 has some composers who really changed history and some of the most powerful women who have been at the front of our stage.
Speaking of power, House 3 has Mahler, enough said. And Anne Gratz’s red shoes. Also, what about the combined power of composer, soloist, and former Young Composer Claire Thai
If you need height, House 4 will help with 6′5″ cellist Amit Peled. And The Beatles are larger than life too. But will there be a power struggle once Hayato Tanaka puts his trumpet to his lips?
Houses 5 and 6 tie at having the most members currently alive (unless you count The Beatles individually, in which case House 4 might have an edge up). So, do you pick House 5 for the man who carries the stick? Or House 6 for the man who has won 25 Grammys and 5 Oscars? And Alana Wiesing might carry the more powerful stick anyway.Subscribe to the 2020–21 Season
