Links: Tüür, BSO Magic Flute (with Moriya addendum)
In Saturday's Washington Post:
Marin Alsop leads BSO, soloists in "Magic Flute," by Anne Midgette.
In transferring this review into the publishing system, I somehow omitted a paragraph. After the lines about Morris Robinson's Sarastro, it should have read: "Mari Moriya, who sang the Queen of the Night, has also appeared in the Met. Having heard her both there and when she was a student at Mannes, I was disappointed by her showing here: there was little legato, and some intonation problems in an exposed part that requires pinpoint clarity." I feel I have now doubly assaulted Ms. Moriya, adding insult to injury by both giving her a bad review and failing to mention her in the paper.
