link roundup

Link roundup is a weekly list of fun, weird, and just plain interesting things that you might not have seen before, from all corners of the classical music internet.

Also this week, resources for musicians and artists affected by COVID-19 cancellations, a look at arts organizations holding public digital rehearsals, and Zubin Mehta's grandkid conducting Borodin like a pro. 

There's no getting around it: life is weird right now. If, like us, you're feeling like you need music now more than ever before, read on.

It's been one heck of a week. Here are 8 things to enjoy wholeheartedly and enthusiastically, from a new barcode instrument, to a deep dive on theremins, to Igor Levit live on Twitter.

Plus, plant music, the world's largest stringed instrument, and the ancient sounds of the Hagia Sophia. 

Also in this roundup: Jessica Alba dances to Beethoven, a robot conducts an orchestra, a cat joins the symphony, and so, so much more.
