Links: Flórez, Hahn, City Choir and Chinese orchestra
In Tuesday's Washington Post:
Juan Diego Flórez sets gold standard, by Anne Midgette.
Hilary Hahn holds audience rapt, by Robert Battey.
From City Choir of Washington, expressive triumph over a tragedy, by Cecelia Porter.
China's Anhui Traditional Orchestra offers energizing sounds, by Joan Reinthaler.
I tried to link to other views, but couldn't find any (though I think Ionarts will weigh in sooner or later). Exhibit A as to why it's important to have multiple reviews of a single concert; how can we possibly get discussion going if the Post remains the only voice in town?
Here are some potential talking points from the reviews linked above: do you think Juan Diego Flórez's singing is nasal, as I do? Do you agree with Robert Battey that Charles Ives is a second-tier American composer? Discuss.
