A resume of recent reviews in the Washington Post:

Robert Battey’s review of the National Symphony Orchestra’s final concert of the season was hard to find on-line after it ran, but here it is: well worth reading.

Joan Reinthaler oversaw happenings on the local opera scene. Last weekend, the Wolf Trap Opera opened its season with a rarity: Wolf-Ferrari’s The Curious Woman (there’s a final performance on Saturday). The Riverbend Opera bit off somewhat more than it could chew with The Tales of Hoffmann.

Cecelia Porter reviewed a trio of brothers playing chamber music, intensely, at the Austrian Embassy.

Charles T. Downey reviewed a vocal recital celebrating Hungary and Poland.

Stephen Brookes went to a strong performance of rebellious Papist music by William Byrd, performed by Chantry (it repeats on Saturday).

And on the CD front, Mark J. Estren compared two recordings of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde.

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.
