Alon Goldstein is always searching for beauty, and he nearly always finds it in no fewer than a dozen varieties. The pianist played a recital Tuesday night at the Curtis Institute as a faculty member for this summer's Philadelphia Young Pianists' Academy. The repertoire was choice. And though the program was constructed of familiar composers, it seemed to make several points all at once. Goldstein told the audience the theme was orchestral, and his playing certainly supported the claim.

Libby Goldstein can't stand the "3-H's" - hazy, hot, humid - for even one more summer. And quite frankly - which, quite frankly, is all this firecracker can be - she's sick of the politics. So after 35 years of intimate involvement, Goldstein has retired from the Southwark/Queen Village Community Garden at Third and Christian Streets, which she founded in 1976. Back then, community gardens were a political act, more about feeding the poor than growing heirloom tomatoes. Unlike hundreds of other gardens from that era, this one survives and thrives - in large measure because of Goldstein, who is both revered as icon and mentor and remembered as "pot-stirrer" and "pain in the a--. " Now, Miss All-of-the-Above has given up her vegetable plot, though not her key to the gate.
