Link: Fall highlights in DC

My thoughts on the upcoming fall season in classical music appear in the Fall Arts Preview in Sunday’s Washington Post. The down side (which I don’t mention in the piece) is a certain conservatism from Washington’s larger organizations; notable trends include both a continued growth in the realm of musical curation, and a notable number of leading contemporary composers

One highlight: Ivan Fischer’s Budapest Festival Orchestra finally makes it to DC, though not until after his stint as the NSO’s principal conductor is over. (If I were at the Kennedy Center, I would have made a point of presenting the two orchestras side by side.)
