Slightly Odd

This just caught my eye. I don’t have anything critical to say about it. It’s just...

It’s just an odd tone to set at the beginning of a positive review.

Since the Pavel Haas Quartet took its name from a prominent composer who perished in 1944 at Auschwitz, it would have been intriguing to have one of Haas’ quartets on the Buffalo program.

That was not the case, but the ensemble still provided an interesting and rewarding program...


See?

I told you. Slightly odd.

Not particularly germaine, but it amuses me.

I wish someone would name a quartet after me so they could not play my music. It would be a recorder or tuba quartet (or a quartet of two records and two tubas)...

I am now making it my life's mission to name a quartet after you. However, it will be comprised of sopranino saxophone, claves (alternately: maracas), ondes Martenot, and Theramin. Please write a piece for us!

If you actually put that group together, I would write a 40 minute magnum opus.
