I would appreciate your telling me their Chinese titlles, whether they are monthly or weekly or just a few issus per year, whether they publish color photos, and, if possible, the email addresses of their editors in chief. Their Chinese names, of course.
> The reason I am asking these is that I have been invited to the Bayreuth Festival and the Salzburg Festival again. You know that they have been giving me annual invitations since 1995, but I have not visited either places since 2008. Now, with Wagner’s 200th birthday coming along, and with the new Ring Cycle to be premiered at Bayreuth this summer, my wife and I have decided to visit there again, with a side trip to Salzburg before or after our intended visit in late August.
> We shall see the new Ring and 3 other music-dramas at Bayreuth. The programs at Salzburg have not been chosen yet, but we will stay for at least a week and will see several operas and will attend as many concerts as possible during this trip. It will cost us over US$25,000 for such visits, but it is worthwhile because we are celebrating our 50th anniversary this summer, and attending these festivals will be the main fare of our celebration. I will of course write lengthy review articles on both festivals, as I used to do while you were in charge of the GRAMERPHONE CHINA. Since it is no longer in existence, I wonder which jourmal or journals would you recommend me to submit my articles.
> I will write to the editors-in-chief of these journals. If you knew them well and would wish to introduce me to them, that would be even better. Otherwise, I can write to them directly and tell them about my background and expertise. I suppose they would welcome my articles which will also include choice color photos of stage productions.
