Liner Notes Vol. 1

Written by Elizabeth Bloom on .

The first in an occasional series -- here are a few articles that have crossed my path and struck my fancy recently (many thanks due to ArtsJournal):
From The Guardian, Bach's troubled childhood 
From CNET, the Computer Orchestra (watch the video)
From The Wall Street Journal, apps for learning about classical music
From The New Republic, a debate as to whether parents should or should not force their kids to play (classical) musical instruments
From Slate, whistling Vivaldi and the death of a black Florida A&M football player
From The New York Times, backstage drama at the Met
