Classical Music
Janelle Gelfand on the classical music scene


Janelle's pen has taken her to Japan, China, Carnegie Hall, Europe (twice), East and West Coasts, and Florida. In fact, Janelle was the first Enquirer reporter to report from Europe via e-mail -- in 1995.

Janelle began writing for the Cincinnati Enquirer as a stringer in 1991 while writing a Ph.D. dissertation in musicology at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. She joined the Enquirer staff in 1993.

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she graduated from Stanford University, Janelle has lived in Cincinnati for more than 30 years. In her free time, this pianist plays chamber music with her circle of musical friends in Cincinnati.

She covers the Cincinnati Symphony, May Festival and Cincinnati Opera, the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, chamber music ensembles, and as many recitals and events at CCM and NKU as possible.

Valencia




Valencia -- what a beautiful city! We flew there on Wednesday via the very efficient Czech Airlines. A plus for all of us was that the concert hall was walking distance from the hotel. A negative is that in Spain, you can't find any food until about 7:30 p.m.

But when I got to the hall, I noticed it had a beautiful atrium facing the fountains in the Turia Gardens, where there were two big bars and tables where people were eating tapas, having coffee or wine. This is something that has been sorely lacking in Music Hall, yet every single hall we have visited here has a cafe or nice bar with sandwiches, cake, tapas, drinks...

Here's a link to the review from Valencia.

By the way, there should be some photos from Paris, Dortmund and Hamburg up on our interactive Web site by now, I hope. Someone else is posting those for me.

It's always such a pleasure to visit Espana. They're always glad that you're there and they take such delight in you trying to speak their language.
