Links: the week in reviews

Catching up with reviews from around the holiday weekend.

Robert Battey heard the NSO and Helmut Rilling in Mendelssohn’s ”Elijah.”

Stephen Brookes kept busy. He reviewed the opening of the
Overtures series, a group of seven concerts at the Kennedy Center commemorating the centenary of Japan’s gift of cherry trees to Washington, starting with the soprano Maki Mori. (The final concert in the series is a recital by the pianist Yu Kosuge, tonight.)

He was disappointed by the Janus Trio on the new music series at the Atlas.

And he was impressed by the Arditti Quartet, which gave a three-hour concert of intriguing music on Tuesday night.

Anne Midgette came to the Washington Post in 2008, when she consolidated her various cultural interests under the single title of chief classical music critic. She blogs at The Classical Beat.
