Martino on Schoenberg’s pastry

Jim Ricci at Deconstructing Jim has an interesting post regarding Don Martino and Schoenberg, including excerpts from Martino e-mails such as the following unexpected comment: “S’s music is to my ear (after Pierrot) uniformly ugly and pedantic with the countenance of stale and heavy German pastry.” I was startled to learn from this post that there is an unperformed Martino Concerto for Orchestra resting in a desk drawer – Gil Rose and BMOP, we need you.
