Classical picks: Rattle re-redux; The Met does 'William Tell'
Reverberations of Rattle. If you didn't get a chance to hear Simon Rattle's recent Mahler in Philadelphia or at Carnegie Hall, pull up the Berlin Philharmonic's Digital Concert Hall and listen to his Mahler Symphony No. 7. The performance is captured with crystalline, close-up views of Rattle and the Philharmonic, and has a bonus interview in which Rattle discusses the work.

Orchestra board OK's new contract; players play pop-up concerts all over town
Musicians of the Philadelphia Orchestra fanned out across the region Tuesday, chatting up fans, playing in string quartets and wind quintets, and doing a little damage control.

Short or long, orchestra strike won't solve all problems
For an oddly giddy half hour or so Friday evening, it seemed as if the Philadelphia Orchestra's strike was going to be the shortest on record - a micro-strike.

Alon Goldstein at PYPA: Choice selections, packed with meaning
Alon Goldstein is always searching for beauty, and he nearly always finds it in no fewer than a dozen varieties.

And though the program was constructed of familiar composers, it seemed to make several points all at once.

Summer facelift for the venerable Academy of Music
It's easy to spot the splashier renovations to the Academy of Music from the past couple of decades - the meticulously restored ballroom, or the enormous crystal chandelier in the main auditorium that now closely resembles the original.

Classical picks: Tribute to Prince; a conductor's masterful final work
Black Pearls, Purple Rain. The Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra pays tribute to Prince on Friday at the Dell Music Center in a side-by-side performance with local amateurs. Conductor Jeri Lynne Johnson leads the ensemble in tunes including "Raspberry Beret" and "The Beautiful Ones." Information: 267-702-2809, - Peter Dobrin

Stalwart Abramovic in virtuosic recital
Charles Abramovic is the big catch who didn't get away. While pianists like Lang Lang and Marc-André Hamelin have moved on to other cities, Abramovic is steadfastly a Philadelphian after following one of his teachers, Harvey Wedeen, into the piano department at Temple University nearly three decades ago.

A game-changing opera director with imagination
Ruth "Kay" Castaldo, 67, an opera director whose imaginative ways helped define the genre during a key period in Philadelphia, died Monday, Aug. 1, in Edgewood, N.M., after battling a brain tumor, her agent said.
