It was another big weekend for classical music. Here is the wealth of reviews that have appeared over the last few days in the Washington Post.
Tom Huizenga heard a Concerto Köln performance that went on in spite of visa problems that kept the group’s concertmaster stuck in Germany.
Joan Reinthaler went back for a second helping of Morton Subotnick at the University of Maryland. (What a shame they scheduled festivals of two key 20th-century composers at the same time; I bet I wasn’t the only audience member who would happily have heard Subotnick if I weren’t hearing Argento.)
And Charles T. Downey, having reviewed the National Symphony Orchestra under Andrew Litton on Thursday, checked out the Daedalus Quartet’s performance of the complete quartets of Fred Lerdahl on Sunday afternoon. When I last heard the third quartet I found it distinctively expressive and individual, but I haven’t heard the whole cycle.
