In this week’s New York Times, 3 musicians receive the credit they deserve for bringing music to disadvantaged kids and taking them far beyond anything they thought possible: 

Francisco J. Núñez, Marin Alsop, and Gustavo Dudamel.  To my mind, this is exactly what needs to happen with classical music in the 21st century.

In addition, there is a wonderful review of the Moscow String Quartet playing music of Russian composers at the Frick Collection.  I was surprised to learn that this is a group of 4 women, and that it has retained the same players since its formation in 1975.
