My “official” review is live at Classical Source, but I’m going to add a few comments here.
Greenhouse was a giant of chamber music and a prominent cello pedagogue. Margalit Fox’s obituary has just gone live at the NY Times.
I’ve been a bit disappointed with the interpretive side of Bernard Haitink’s most recent concerts with the Chicago Symphony in Carnegie Hall, but remain mighty impressed by the quality of the orchestra. Under Haitink’s interim leadership between music directors Daniel Barenboim and Riccardo Muti (in tandem with Pierre Boulez), the orchestra remains one of the world’s greatest, and has even taken on a richer wind sound.
