From Wikipedia: Cadenzas for the work have been written by several notable violinists, including Joachim. The cadenzas by Fritz Kreisler are probably most often employed. More recently, composer Alfred Schnittke provided controversial cadenzas with a characteristically 20th-century flavor; violinist Gidon Kremer has recorded the concerto with the Schnittke cadenzas.[4] New Klezmer-inspired cadenzas written by Airat Ichmatourov for Alexandre Da Costa in 2011 have been recorded by the Taipei Symphony Orchestra for Warner Classics and will be released in 2013.

The following violinists and composers have written cadenzas: Continue reading

‘Intrebarea’, Scenariu Inedit de George-B

‘Intrebarea’, Scenariu inedit, de George-B 

Personalul n-a oprit in statie
ci a trecut vîjîind cu maximum de viteza,
Tulburand praful,
O pagina de ziar,

Un paharel de carton, aruncat linga cosul de gunoi, gol,
cateva seminte de ciulini, 
Dar mai ales: a revisit parul la cel putin 20 de pasageri
acum lasati in voia soartei; se intreaba si intreaba
ce s-a putut intampla cu trenul ca nu a oprit in gara.
Statia automatizata, nu avea nici un angajat,

iar fostul angajat, subzista acum,
nu se stie din ce surse,  sub o scara veche de lemn,
care nu cazuse inca, 
printr-o minune de neinteles-
ca pana si respiratia fostului angajat al garii,
acum automatizate,
îi tulbura infrastructura îmbatranita inainte de vreme de…
parasire, se pare, in mod vadit.

Dar, inapoi la pasagerii far-de tren, din statia…parasita (automatizata)
pentru un viitor luminos, dar far-de lumina,
in care numai automatizarea era angajata….
Dar din cauza ca nu avea nevoi, precum oamenii, nu era platita,
dar nici nu volunta, un paradox, fara definitie in dictionarele globale,
si nascand o intrebare in  mintile tuturor:

“Dac-as-i Prezentul, pentr’ce Viitor?” 



Michigan Judge Removed From Office For Lying Under Oath

They can get the job…But can they keep the job?


bildegavel2The Michigan Supreme Court voted yesterday 5-2 to remove Wayne Family Circuit Judge Deborah Ross Adams from office for lying under oath and other violations of judicial ethics. In removing Adams, the court found that a 180-day suspension recommended by the Judicial Tenure Commission was manifestly too low for a judge lying under oath.

Where did we get all this ^%$* ?

readful things blog

Maybe it’s because I don’t intend to stay in the house I live in forever. Maybe it’s just all the crap that’s been going on lately, but the clutter is beginning to drive me mad.

Do you ever walk into your house and look around and say–where the &*%# did all this $%#^ come from? I did that this morning. Honestly. Where did the kids and I get all this crap?

See, part of the problem is that I am was a nomad. Before having kids, I bounced around a lot from place to place and travelled light. One thing is for certain–children are stuff magnets. You can’t walk into a store or go to a friend’s house without them returning with something.

(okay so all the shoes are my fault.)

The problem, as I see it, is that if I am ever going to do another of my fantastically…
