Weekend links: strong pieces in Monday's Post
In Monday's Washington Post, some extremely strong pieces. (I can say this, since they aren't by me.)
Miami's new concert hall, designed by Frank Gehry, by Philip Kennicott. Notable thoughts about one orchestra's systematic journey into the 21st century with a concert hall conceived to help create a new kind of concert experience. This is a must-read story.
Other views: Nicolai Ouroussoff in the New York Times.
Christopher Hawthorne in the Los Angeles Times.
Brian Ganz takes a wordy approach to Chopin, but his playing is masterful, by Robert Battey. The locally-based pianist starts a ten-year project of playing all of Chopin's piano works.
Eschenbach and Barto take on an all-American program at the NSO (scroll down), by Joe Banno. A review of the concert that's being recorded for release in May, the NSO's first commercial recording in 10 years.
Another view: Tim Smith in the Baltimore Sun.
Pianist Sofya Gulyak, former Kapell Competition winner, returns to DC, by Charles T. Downey.
