I got up this morning and saw that that the New York Times has a holiday gift guide recommending among others: Anthony Braxton’s complete Arista box set, Elliott Carter’s piano works with Ursula Oppens (Cedille), the Orion String Quartet playing Leon Kirchner’s string quartets (Albany) and Messian’s piano works with Pierre-Laurent Aimard (Deutsche Grammophon).

Somehow seeing the local paper include all of those gave me a “glad to be a New Yorker” moment….gotta love it…
