Hitting the Links
Here are a few random links that caught my eye in recent days:
Henry Fogel wrote last week about orchestra board members trying to influence music-director selection, showing the perils of even the most well-meaning and unintentional conflict of interest.
Responses from the blogosphere: Jim McCarthy carried the age-of-the-audience debate from this blog last week over onto his own blog with some provocative thoughts about the so-called "young audience." (As another blogger observed, this is an old and well-worn subject, but it still seems to hit a nerve every time it comes up.)
I was commiserating with someone else in the field recently about how we hadn't had time to watch the Cliburn competition on the Web. Well, the results came in last weekend, and one critc thinks the judges got it way wrong. You can go back and watch the archived performances on the web and see for yourself.
One reader tried to post this amusing link about standing ovations in Utah as a blog comment. It didn't go through, so he sent it to me, and I'm posting it for him.
Note: The Comments section of Washington Post blogs apparently doesn't like Weblinks. If you try to post a link in a comment to this blog, your comment will automatically go into the spam folder, which I don't check every day. You are not being censored; I will clear your post for publication as soon as I see it. But your posts will go up more quickly if you don't include Weblinks. (And if you try to post it seven times, I will get seven copies of it in my spam folder.)
