THE GOOD MEASURE (1400) is traveling again, headed for favorite destinations — the exotic lands of Asia in 20th century music. Vaughan Williams expresses the yearning of the Song of Solomon in "Flos Campi". Ukrainian Thomas de Hartmann and self-styled guru, the Armenian Georges Gurdjieff, capture the "Songs and Rhythms of Asia". And we are also in for a bit of Tuvan throat-singing in "Uleg-Khem". ...

From the panoply of concerts honoring Richard Strauss 150 years after his birth, we have a signature event from Dresden. Richard Strauss conducted "his" orchestra—the Hofkapelle Berlin—some 1200 times. Known today as the Staatskapelle Berlin, it was led by Strauss for 22 years. Its current head, Daniel Barenboim, has done so for an equal amount of time. The maestro flew from Milan to Dresden to lead this concert with music by two Richards: Wagner and Strauss. The concert in May 2014 was the very first time the Berlin orchestra has played at Dresden's Semper Opera. That may have something to do with a long-standing rivalry between the two "Staatskapellen", in Berlin and in Dresden, for the status of "the" Strauss orchestra. The two orchestras feature in different editions of CONCERT HOUR (2000). This week, the Berlin orchestra pairs the Overture to Wagner's "Mastersingers of Nuremberg" with a symphonic poem that Strauss titled "A Hero's Life"—immodestly so, as the subject matter is the composer himself. ...
