Magic of Spectacle

This is getting a fair amount of play in the blogosphere; each will have his own preference, no doubt, but I rather enjoy Joel Achenbach’s take on the matter.

There is much mitigating realism in the matter (weather not at all amenable to a chamber quartet performing, and weather aside, not really the acoustic environment for that sort of thing, e.g.); and yet, something of a sour aftertaste of deception, perhaps.

(I missed that particular ‘event’ on the day, so I cannot possibly have an opinion.)
