The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra’s recent performance of Symphony No. 2 “The Sweet Season” is scheduled to be broadcast on many public radio stations in early January. See the new radio broadcasting page for details about this upcoming broadcast as well as miscellaneous information about no-so-upcoming broadcasts that have featured Mr. Schickele and/or his music.

The unanswered questions posted in our previous news item (see below) are now no longer unanswered! The mysteries surrounding just exactly which and whose works are being performed at the New York concerts this December are no longer mysteries! The veil of obscurity surrounding the concerts has been lifted to give you unveiled obscurity! Read the complete concert descriptions written by none other than the Professor himself! See the complete list of works listed in the program listing! Those of you who have been undecided about attending these concerts can now be no longer undecided.
One of the most frequently asked questions since this Web site was launched (and even before since then) was: “what happened to the annual P.D.Q. Bach concerts in New York this year?” Well, here’s your answer: they’re being done a bit differently this year, but they’re still in New York City during the week between Christmas and New Years. Check the concert schedule to find out exactly when and where, and to see a few other concerts in other parts of the country that have been recently added to the schedule.
This is likely to cause even more questions to be asked frequently, like “what works will be played?” and “who’s that other guy who’s sharing top billing with P.D.Q. Bach this year?” Prof. Schickele is currently researching the answers to those questions, and complete details about the concert will be posted as soon as they are available.
The Peter Schickele/P.D.Q. Bach Web Site, your official on-line source for all the latest information about the lives and works of Mr. Peter Schickele, Prof. Peter Schickele, P.D.Q. Bach, and lots of other people, debuts on the World Wide Web! Using the handy links above and below, you can find out all about the music of Peter Schickele, the research of Prof. Schickele, and where and when you can see either or both of them in concert. And because no Web site devoted to the music of P.D.Q. Bach was made during the composer’s lifetime, information about him has been thrown in here too.
