Every Monday morning at 9:15, I join John Birge on Classical MPR to talk about stories we’re featuring on our website. Here are the stories we’ll be discussing today.

Last week, Philip Glass published his long-awaited memoir Words Without Music. For a taste of what Glass reveals, check out my list of the book’s top ten tidbits.

Cellist Edward Kelsey Moore has been writing occasional essays for our website. Last week, he wrote about a few of his musical heroes: Isaac Stern, Jaqueline du Pré, and Diana Ross.

We’ve been revisiting some of our favorite essays from our website on the new American Public Media listening site: YourClassical. For example, this week you can read Gwen Hoberg’s insightful essay on how practicing an instrument is like working out while you listen to YourClassical’s stream of energetic music​.
