Electric Vivaldi

Jun 03, 2005

I’m a marginal conductor, but a pretty good fundraiser for the Boulder Philharmonic.  Fortunately Gregory Walker – the Boulder Phil’s concertmaster (the first violin for those of you like me that didn’t know what a concertmaster was) keeps the Boulder Phil on beat whenever I’m conducting.  Since Gregory has always made me look good, it was very easy for me and my friend Howard Diamond (who – among other things – owns a jazz record label) to support Gregory’s efforts to record a version of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons using an electronic violin.  I just found out that Newport Classic is going to produce the CD – congrats to Gregory!
