5 x 5

Steve Hicken of listen has dropped a meme. My answers include only works or people that I have not actually seen/heard/met in person before:

1) What five operas would you most like to see performed?

Il Riturno d' Ulisse In Patria; L'Oca del Cairo; Guillaume Tell; Die Feen; Four Saints in Three Acts.

2) What five pieces would you most like to hear performed? Oliveros: In Memoriam Nikola Tesla, Cosmic Engineer; Mumma: Hornpipe; Sibelius: Fourth Symphony; Partch: Delusion of the Fury; Mozart: G Minor Quintet

3) What five living performers would you most like to meet? Mitsuko Uchida (piano), Ki Purbo Asmoro (javanese dalang), Rohan de Saram (cello), Maurice Steger (recorder), Juliane Banse (soprano)

4) What five living composers would you most like to meet? I'd rather meet one really good dentist first.

5) What five living musicians (composers, performers, writers, scholars, etc) would you most like to play three-on-three basketball with/against? I'll go two on three with rapper Shaquille O'Neal against musicologist Richard Taruskin, composer Charles Wuorinen and critic Norman Lebrecht. Heck, they can even have the blogger A.C. Douglas on their side.
