Pianist/composer Leo Ornstein in 1914. Public domain.

It sounded to me like a major find.

Click here to read Hamelin, Pacifica Quartet, revive Ornstein quintet. Orange County Register, Nov. 13, 2013.

Also, Rick Shultz’s preview article on Ornstein and the quintet, in which Rick talks to, among others, the composer’s 83-year-old son — yes, we included his age — is well worth your time. Click here to read it. I get an editing credit on this one, though not the pay.
