Update: What to look for in 2009

I am adding composer Nico Muhly to the list of people to watch for in 2009. He (or his publicist) has done a good job in getting press on his recent compositions. Variety did two different articles on him, one on Dec 17 and another on Jan 5th. He's also been featured in the LA Times, Paste Magazine and the Chicago Tribune. Perhaps this is because of his association with Phillip Glass or because he composed the music for the acclaimed "The Reader" just hitting the cinemas. Whatever the case, this sort of press is only likely to promote more press (like this blog)...
