Jane Napier Neely Chit Chat from Here and There In this oppressive heat I can't move a toe much less several fingers in order to write a lengthy column. And besides that, everyone has gone into hibernation in his or her air-conditioned caves. Absolutely nada is happening in town — nobody is goin' anywhere and people are doin' nuttin'.

Longtime Pasadena Symphony conductor Jorge Mester distinctly remembers the first time he heard Howard Shelley play the piano. It was more than 20 years ago in Canada, at the rehearsal for a performance of famed Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “Rhapsody on the theme of Paganini.” “He brought an incredible insight into the character of each of the variations,” Mester recalled. “I thought I’d never heard this piece before—this guy is really playing it.” That rehearsal would mark the beginning of a long friendship and professional collaboration between the two musicians, who will come together once again Saturday night at Pasadena’s Civic Auditorium.
