Dreigroschenoper (Threepenny opera) by Brecht and Weill opened Berlin Admiralspalast

by Michael Fischer The Independent

Klaus Maria Brandauer's eagerly awaited production of The Threepenny Opera at Berlin Admiralspalast has received a mixed reception.

Kulturstiftung des Bundes - The Golden Calf

Kulturstiftung des Bundes - The Golden Calf

I was allowed to conduct this ballet performance, which turned out to be a very pleasant experience due to the exciting music of Helmut Zapf and the amazing musicians of the ensemble mosaik and of course the great collaboration with all text writers, singers, dancers, video artists and stagers builders, technicians and organisers.
Thank you all! And thanks to everybody who came listening!

Diego Chavez Vargas' excellent web site

Wow! This is the first blog i found myself being mentioned in and linked from!
And this blog is a valuable source (for me) about the music, the music scene and a young composer from a country (Costa Rica) i hardly heard anything about before!

Thank you Diego, and I did not forget that I owe you some emails still....

New Hydrogen

As seen on slashdot and television:

Forget about greenhouse!
Don't bother with cold fusion!
Waste energy!

This is New Physics!

(Simply make sure to buy enough solar cells before sitting in the dark, they might become cheap for a while...)

I will buy a free beer to the first person sending me a photograph of the new hydrogen atom!
