Naba, I beg you -- do not put Matt Haimovitz and Vanessa Mae in the same sentence. He brings classical music to new venues; she appropriates classical melodies for pop music. Nothing is wrong with Vanessa Mae's work, but it is by no means a classical career. Crossover sells albums to audiences that don't buy classical product, but it doesn't cross those audiences over into the classical realm. I hope you read Alex Ross's blog. He points to plenty of exciting contemporary work going on that doesn't resort to cheap pop theatrics.

Brad, I was going with the assumption that anything that promotes classical music is good, but you do have a point. Besides, Matt Haimovitz's approach is something I can see my daughter and her friends trying out in practice. Thanks for pointing out Alex Ross's blog (http://www.therestisnoise.com/), I'll start browsing it now.

Naba, it's great to hear that your daughter is working to become a violinist. My daughter played for a few years in school and lost interest. I always enjoyed going to her performances though and sort of wish she would have continued. I worry sometimes that there aren't enough young people taking an interest in classical music and instruments like the violin. To be honest, I only started listening to classical music a few years ago -- I was lost in rock/pop music for far too long! I still only listen to classical music a few times a month, but it's a great way to relax. In fact, I found that my youngest daughter (10 years old) loves to fall asleep to a Vivaldi CD I have...I always know where to look for it when it's not in the box!

Tretinoin skin care drug preparations are a family of drugs all similar to Vitamin A. In general, tretinoin gels are stronger than tretinoin creams because the medicine penetrates better when in a gel form. Tretinoin is used to treat acne and aged, sun damaged skin. Tretinoin works best when used in combination with alpha hydroxyacid preparations. If used over a period of years, tretinoin will continue to reverse aging of the skin and can continue improving the skin's appearance even ten years after starting treatment.
