The Washington Post

Late links: the week in review(s)

Due to illness, posting here has been erratic this week. Here, a look back at the Washington Post’s classical reviews from the week past.

Stephen Brookes reviewed a concert of Scarlatti’s harpsichord music played in front of art work that Frank Stella created in response to Scarlatti. But why didn’t they choose the same pieces that actually inspired Stella?

Joan Reinthaler checked out the Wounded Warriors tribute by the organization Beethoven Found: playing classial music for veterans is laudable, but the music-making was inferior.

She also reviewed a perhaps overenthusiastic concert by the Avanti Orchestra, an arm of the Friday Morning Music Club.

In related n ews: that venerable and noteworthy organization, the Friday Morning Music Club, announced this week that next season its traditional Friday lunchtime concert series will leave its long-time venue, the Sumner Museum, for a new home. Its new season starts October 7th at Calvary Baptist Church on 8th and H Streets NW. 2011-12 marks the organization’s 125th anniversary.
