Plays conjuring Manhattan in the 1930s often take on the look of a live-action Edward Hopper painting. Not a bad thing. Actually, the effect is stunning when the curtain rises on The Nance.

I've been hearing this music since the cradle, yet, when played right, it never fails to surprise me with its gems of tenderness. This evening, there were no such surprises. Pretty and attractive music, to be sure, but it's not the same thing as opening up the treasures of your heart.

The New York Philharmonic is a strange creature. Often it is good but a bit bland. Sometimes it's downright boring. And sometimes it makes you sit up in your seat and think what a historical and good orchestra this is.

Mr. Bronfman, I am sorry that you had to get up early on a Friday morning to play music that you evidently do not enjoy. Really, do you like this music? Do you think it's beautiful and wondrous? I think not, judging by your performance.
