This is an amazing film about an orchestra that I warrant most Americans have not experienced.  The Louisville Orchestra is one of the great leading-edge groups in the United States.

The Estonian composer's contemplative yet powerful music has found popularity beyond the borders of classical music. He's making a rare appearance in the U.S. to attend a festival of his music.

Thanks +pastrychef1985 and J.  This is a great symphony by a lesser-known composer.  As always, I wish these pieces were played much more often than they are.

This is a great album, highlighting both the early and middle music of Braga Santos.  I say middle because Braga Santos passed away much too early.  It is truly a shame that orchestras do not add him to their regular live repertoire, preferring instead the repetition of Beethoven, Bach, Mozart or other overplayed composers.

The Black Canyon requires at least a half day to really begin enjoying it.  A camping trip is much better, however.  A G+ search brings up many good pics/experiences: here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/%22Black%20Canyon%20of%20the%20Gunnison%22
 
Oh my, that's a consequential gap.  :-)
 
Physicists plugged the Higgs boson into models of cosmic inflation, and the universe disappeared. Fixing that error could involve finding a new particle. (from #NOVAnext)
