PRINCETON: The great snowstorm event that never happened

┬ŁAs director of emergency management for Princeton, Robert Gregory kept an eye on the weather forecast Monday that had called for a severe storm bringing a foot or more of snow.

By late Monday night, forecasters were changing their predictions and the town and the rest of the state avoided the worst of a storm that dumped large amounts of snow on Long Island, New York and New England.

“Clearly, the models were a little bit off, but I’m not complaining,” Mr. Gregory said Tuesday afternoon.



Schedule Change for Princeton University Concerts
Stefan Jackiw will take place of Isabelle Faust on Feb. 5
PRINCETON University Concerts has announced that violinist Isabelle Faust has had to cancel her concert with Alexander Melnikov scheduled for Feb. 5 at Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall on the Princeton University Campus. In her place violinist Stefan Jackiw who will perform a duo program with pianist Anna Polonksy of works by Ravel, Witold Lutoslawski, Kaija Saariaho and Franck. The date and time of the concert will remain the same.

   In a press release, Marna Seltzer, director of the Princeton University Concerts Series said, “We are disappointed not to be able to hear Faust and Melnikov but given the fast and international trajectory of their career I feel certain that we will have the opportunity to hear them in Princeton in a future season. This cancellation gives us a chance to introduce our audience to a pair of artists who are among the most remarkable players of today’s generation. Jackiw’s playing is very much in the spirit of the concert that we were to hear. He is a remarkable musician whose playing is marked by poetry and purity combined with an impeccable technique, which is something I might also have ascribed to Isabelle Faust. For that reason, this is an ideal substitution and I feel sure that our audience is in for a real treat.”

   Mr. Jackiw’s program will include Maurice Ravel’s “Tzigane,” Witold Lutoslawski’s Partita,” Kaija Saariaho “Nocturne in memory of W. Lutoslawski” and César Franck’s Sonata in A Major.
