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.

We'd tell you to hold your horses, but that would defeat the purpose of this link roundup. This week: stories about movie trailers, giant pianos, AI-generated music, and, yeah, farm animals. You ready?

Also in this link roundup: a lioness gets a serenade, a textbook math question has a Beethoven problem, and the Philadelphia Orchestra gets sorted. Onward!
