Weekend Roundup, in brief
Philip Glass's newest opera had its world premiere last night in Linz, Austria (where the conductor Dennis Russell Davies has his artistic base). Kepler will come to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in October, though in a concert version rather than a full staging. Stay tuned for reviews. (Or, better yet, post one yourself.)
The Philadelphia Orchestra, without a president or music director, is in very, very bad shape.
And a link from this weekend's Washington Post: Leon Kirchner, the composer, died on Thursday after a long illness. His music was dense, expressive, individual. He was also an impressive pianist, conductor, and teacher: his students at Harvard included Yo Yo Ma and John Adams.
