A brief note on El Nino

Due to the nefarious machinations of Colombian landlords, my access to the internet while I'm in LA this weekend is limited to a computer difficult for me to use at length. I wanted to write about seeing El Nino, but not having the resources to write at length, let me just say this is a far different experience than when the piece debuted in 2001. Darker and more mystical, it's a compelling, very intense evening of music. There is one more performance tonight- if you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend you don't miss it.
