Now that you know who I am, let me explain who I am not. I am asked frequently about the similarity of my name to Dr. Anthony Tommasini, the chief classical music critic for The New York Times. Although our names are often (mis)spelled alike, we are not related.
Someday, I hope to meet Dr. Tommasini. In the meantime, I enjoy reading his work. Here are links to his Wikipedia biography and to his articles in The Times.
