      Musiс rising among the dead

      Deep in one of New York's most prestigious cemeteries, the eerie vibrations of a string concerto ricochet off catacomb walls, a seance of sorts invigorating the spirit of classical music. Media reports regularly warn of the genre's impending doom, but Andrew Ousley, who founded the cheekily named "Death of Classical" series, says the obituaries are beyond premature.

      Dolora Zajick: Bulgaria has great voices

      You have had such great artists as Ghena Dimitrova, with whom I have worked together, same for Raina Kabaivanska. But my impression is that there is something like a break assessing the Bulgarian vocal school. Every talent must be brought to light and developed. Money is needed to develop the so many talented singers that you have, people need to do their job well, Metropolitan Opera star, mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick says in an interview to Europost.

      DJ Wehbba: I can't switch off from music

      The only thing I carried from my time as a dentist over to the music was my devotion to research and to acquiring knowledge. As a dentist you need to study relentlessly to be on top, so that you are able to help your patients in the best way. In music, it's very easy to conform to formulas and stick to a plan, so I'm happy I was able to experience what I did as a dentist and learned how to keep “flexing the muscle” in my brain, says the emblematic electronic music DJ from Brazil in an interview to Europost.

      Woodstock, pinnacle of the hippie dream, turns 50

      A freewheeling weekend of indulgence. A New York farm transformed by idealistic youths into a mid-size city. A celebration of rock music and utopian ideals.
