After years of rarely including the Meyerson Symphony Center's big Fisk organ in orchestra concerts, the DSO is marking its 25th anniversary this season with several works. Its representation this time was A Globe Itself Infolding, an 11-minute piece by the 33-year-old Canadian composer/conductor Samy Moussa. Premiered three years ago in Montreal, it's hardly an organ showpiece. Indeed, the organ mainly supplies variant textures and gestures within the orchestral tapestry.
The area's 2017-18 classical-music season started over the last two weekends with concerts by the Fort Worth and Dallas symphony orchestras. But there's a lot more coming up, including quite a variety of concerts this week. After 10 years as music director of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Jaap van Zweden is leaving at the end of this season to helm the New York Philharmonic.
Yo-Yo Ma, the most famous cellist since Pablo Casals, was doubtless a big draw for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra's 2017 Gala Saturday night. He delivered the goods, all right, in the Dvorรกk Cello Concerto, but the real stars of the evening were the DSO itself, and music director Jaap van Zweden. Also on the program were the last two movements of the Mahler Fifth Symphony, which the DSO played in its entirety on the weekend's subscription concerts.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
