Something like Daylight Saving Time came early on Friday evening when conductor Edo de Waart, San Diego Symphony concertmaster Jeff Thayer, and a 20-player string and harpsichord ensemble briefly turned an overcast evening into sparkling sunshine in a performance of J.S. Bach’s A-minor violin concerto. Thayer’s restrained temperament and his elegant — if slightly underpowered — sound fit Bach’s classically balanced structure in this three-movement work with hand-in-glove smoothness.
The third program in San Diego New Music’s “in: transit” series — titled “Displaced” — offered solid music-making in a somewhat melancholy vein Thursday evening in the Jacobs Music Room at La Jolla’s Athenaeum Music & Arts Library. Clarinetist Robert Zelickman, recently retired after an acclaimed teaching career at UC San Diego, curated the program and provided dazzling virtuosoity in four out of its five works.
Joseph Haydn’s biographers have searched his life for the moment when he conceived the idea of a string quartet. Did he have a grand epiphany of its sonic possibilities? Did he intuit that four strings — voiced from high to low — could express ideas and emotions from bawdy humor through soul-stirring romance to philosophical profundity? There is a story that a nobleman friend asked Haydn to write something for him and three amateur musician friends.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
