Links: Angela Hewitt reviewed, plus a “telematic opera”

Michael Tilson Thomas, eighth blackbird and Kim Kashkashian (no, not Kim Kardashian) may have won big on Grammy night, but the pianist Angela Hewitt was robbed: Grammy coverage preempted space for the review of her weekend recital to run in Monday’s paper. Here is Tom Huizenga’s appraisal, no less astute for being online-only. (What do you think of using Faziolis in recital? Discuss.)

Other concerts Post critics reviewed this weekend included the pianist Marouan Benabdallah’s recital at the Phillips; Imani Winds at the National Academy of Sciences; and the guitarists Sergio and Odair Assad at Dumbarton Oaks Museum.

On Monday night I saw a “telematic opera” called “Auksalaq,” which is about global warming and its effects on Alaska. The technology was well and good, but the content needed a little work.

Above: Angela Hewitt playing Ravel’s “Le tombeau de Couperin,” which she played on her DC recital this weekend, reviewed online by Tom Huizenga.
