Walt Mundkowsky was born 1944 in San Antonio, TX. As a teenager, he had a dachshund named after Hugo Wolf. Extensive writings on film (cf. his “Cinema Obscura” column in Home Theater, 1995-2001). He favors the mine-shaft approach to music listening — in-depth exploration of tiny, unrelated areas. A resident of Beverly Hills, he has lived in basements in Denver, London and Stockholm, and may very well do so again.
A Winterreise with tenor and period piano arouses my interest (hinting at Schubert’s own recital for his friends?).
I’m happy to find the Italian early-music label Symphonia back in the marketplace. Here’s a glance at a Biber release (inessential but lots of fun), with others to follow.
