Old is New
A word to the wise music lover: Run, dont walk, to this series Frank Daykin from The New York Concert Review
Wa Concert Series continues with its first musical offering of this new year Old is New, an evening of old masterpieces by Handel, Crusell and Mozart performed on period instruments as they were once imagined, conceived and heard by the masters themselves.
