Thursday morning composer Stephanie Berg was on hand for the first rehearsal of her Ravish and Mayhem, which receives its St. Louis Symphony premiere this weekend. Following the rehearsal she was backstage giving plenty of thanks to the musicians for playing her work so well. She especially sought out Associate Principal Clarinet Diana Haskell, with whom she’d taken a workshop once upon a time. Clarinet bonding.
