WHEN IS CLASSICAL MUSIC HIP?

DAVID SREBNIK asks—and answers HERE   PS: ON SUNDAY, after his performance of the Schumann Cello Concerto at Tanglewood, Yo-Yo Ma, who considers conductor David Zinman one of his great mentors and friends, took a microphone to make a public plea to the 13,924 concert-goers to help find Mr. Zinman’s four-month-old Cuban Havanese puppy Carlito, who was lost earlier that morning. Yo-Yo gave out the numbers of the Stockbridge and Lenox police to get everyone on the case! (Happy ending; the puppy was found that evening.)
