I had a bit of a classical music (sort of)  revival this past week.  I was surfing Facebook and stumbled upon a page that mentioned a band called Apocalyptica.  If you're not familiar with them, they're a Finnish cello metal band.  Having played cell in highschool, I immediately had to get their album. 

Starting today is the 9th Annual New Music Festival at the Boston Converatory.  That means free concerts for you guys! 

The Boston Conservatory Music Division hosts its 9th annual New Music Festival, a celebration of composer Pierre Boulez, Nov. 11—14, 2010. Under the artistic direction of Eric Hewitt, chair of the woodwind department, the festival features four concerts of contemporary chamber music by Boston Conservatory faculty and students, guest artists and ensembles-in-residence. All concerts are at 8 p.m. in Seully Hall, 8 The Fenway, Boston. Admission is FREE.

According to Hewitt, “It is with great honor and enthusiasm that we celebrate the 85th birthday of a living compositional giant, Pierre Boulez. Over the New Music Festival's four-night portrait of Boulez, we will present 11 of his seminal works. The festival will simultaneously explore the relatively unknown music of one of Boulez's contemporaries from the 1960's, Jean Barraqué.

I never should have given up the cello.  I should have moved to Finland instead (or any of the other Nordic countries) and started a cello metal band.
