I am trying something new on my Facebook feed: a classical music ( or music-related) video from Vimeo or YouTube each day shortly after 7pmEST. I will be doing this through at least the end of May. Enjoy!
My review is up at Classical Source. Yes, Bruckner is exciting when it’s done right.
My review is live on Classical Source. I’ll add that the orchestra, which has always given James Levine committed playing whenever they’ve appeared at Carnegie Hall, is just as in tune with Fabio Luisi, whose interpretations have very strong personality.

My review is live at Classical Source. My quibbles with the Corigliano’s One Sweet Morning notwithstanding, it is a substantial work showcasing a superb singer that got a top-shelf US premiere. I recommend you give a listen when it becomes available — which it almost certainly will, as the telling forest of mics above and in front of the orchestra telegraphed. My guess: we’ll see it appear on DG Concerts early next year.
