Lisa Hirsch's Classical Music Blog.
The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve. Lovers, to bed; 'tis almost fairy time.

My own hack at an Einstein review. http://theclassicalreview.com/2012/09/glasss-epic-einstein-remains-an-opera-for-our-time-at-bam/
I'm updating my reviews list and pushing it to the top of the heap here. I know there's one Bay Area blogger who hasn't yet gotten a posting up.
I had forgotten that Woolfe was the new wunderkind of the Times. Except for the nepotism part, he seems like the Luke Russert of music criticism. What an embarrassing review - it reads like one you'd read in a college newspaper - the missing the point part, as well as the need to put down someone famous. Is he supposed to connect to younger readers because he listens to music on his laptop and seemingly has add, with no additional insights to bring to the table?
Kind of unfortunately, isn't it? Wilson, Glass, and Child create a Gesamtkunstwerk, and he can only appreciate the musical side of it.
