  1. I do bileeve that the Saint Louis Symphony recorded the Doctor Atomic Symphony when they played it in St. Louis last week. I’m not sure in what fashion and when it will be released.

  2. Is this in reference to the Concord Symphony by Charles Ives via Henry Brant, or to something on the show featuring Sibelius and Segerstam, among others? I wasn’t much charmed by Doctor Atomic as I saw it on TV or heard bits of it on the radio. John Adams has some good days but to my way of hearing Doctor Atomic is not one of them.
