Saturday links: musicians in profile

By various critics

In the Virginian Pilot, Teresa Annas follows the Peter Mark/Virginia Opera story by getting into some of the pros and cons about Mark that emerge as soon as you start asking people questions about him.

In New York Magazine, Justin Davidson writes a lovely short piece about Steven Blier, the pianist-coach-vocal guru who, with and without his New York Festival of Song, makes regular Washington appearances with Vocal Arts DC and the Wolf Trap Opera.

I have played for many, many conductors and some of them have been tough, but when you realize they do it for the music, you take NOTHING personally. People need to know that every viola player is by definition somewhat frustrated to start with. I also suspect there is something to this story that remains unsaid. Good luck to Peter Mark.
