Dvorak, again? Alsop, BSO at Strathmore

In Saturday's Washington Post: "Doctor Atomic" Symphony bombs at Strathmore, by Robert Battey.

Another view: Tim Smith of the Baltimore Sun (whose blog name has been altered to "Clef Notes & Drama Queens," presumably to indicate the expansion of his beat to include theater).

Wow, Robert Batty's review is one of the bitchier ones I've read. The Dr. Atomic Symphony isn't one of Adams' strongest works and the New World Symphony is indeed overplayed, but his criticisms make me feel a little sorry for his victims.

I have to say I enjoyed the concert, and the friend I brought was enchanted.
