Um, Wow. (And Some Context.)

I am quoted in Alex Ross's New Yorker column dated November 25, 2013, which is about the disastrous failures of management at NYCO and the Minnesota Orchestra and about violinist Hilary Hahn. The quotation comes from a 2011 blog posting about NYCO and Philly that I quoted myself earlier this year in the context of the ongoing wreck in Minnesota.
Thanks to Alex for the mention, and to Will Robin for the tweet alerting me to the article in advance of the arrival of my print copy of The New Yorker.

Bravo. It's a great line, and eminently worth quoting.

Joshua Kosman said...

And certainly a lot classier and more serious than my only quotation in the New Yorker.

Lisa Hirsch said...

However, yours is a lot funnier than mine, and for that reason quite possibly more memorable!

Congrats, Lisa! Can't wait to see it (may be at home when I get there tonight).

Lisa, Joshua, stop squabbling. Both are fabulous quotes.

Lisa Hirsch said...

You have a very, very low threshold for "squabble." :)

Big Media Lisa.

Haha, only one appearance! Not so big.
