Opening Salvo

Munich and Everything After

Welcome to Copper #59!

Blame any errors in this issue on jet lag, following the Munich show. We’ve got a brief photo feature on the show here, and we have a video chock full of interviews, here.  Along with our own Roy Hall, you’ll see Jeff Dorgay, Steve Rochlin, Ken Kessler, Art Dudley, Michael Fremer, Alan Sircom, and many more. For you pdf types, check the PS Audio YouTube channel.

Our regulars aren’t jet-lagged: Larry Schenbeck leads off with a whole mess o’Messiaen; Dan Schwartz worries about things that he hears—and things that he doesn’t; Richard Murison takes a detour around DutoitJay Jay French continues his series on his guitar influences, with Eric ClaptonRoy Hall  writes an affecting piece about JerusalemAnne E. Johnson brings us  indie band Electric Guest; Woody Woodward concludes his two-parter on Hoagy Carmichael; and I look at high prices and Nagra (not connected!)..

Industry News looks at a new Editor for Inner Fidelity and AudioStream, the sale of Musical Fidelity, and a few short stories about some usual suspects.

Copper #59 concludes with an amorous audiophile caught in the act from Charles Rodrigues, and a striking and slightly eerie Parting Shot from Richard Murison.

Thanks for reading, and see you next issue!

Cheers, Leebs.
