In case you missed Andrew Patner's comments on my post below, they are certainly worth a read. I'm honored that people in the classical criticism establishment are reading and responding to Seated Ovation. One of the reasons I started this blog is to open up more of a critical dialogue about classical music in Chicago, something that I think is a bit stronger in New York. Between the newspapers, magazines, and numerous classical blogs in NYC, I think it's easier for critics to have an interesting back-and-forth (unfortunately, on the internet this often comes down to Parterre readers sniping at the Times). Chicago doesn't have quite as many sources for this, so even with important concerts there may only be one or two opinions to read out there. It's nice to know that mine is being heard.
