    In fact, ultra-maroon.

  • In yet more news, Lebrecht furtively rewrites a potentially libelous headline.

  • In yet more news, Lebrecht makes stuff up

    “The Landestheater Salzburg has given the world premiere of Max Brand’s Stormy Interlude, conducted by its music director, Mirga Gražinyt?-Tyla… ”

    The world premiere of “Stormy Interlude” was a concert performance given in Vienna in 1996, in conjunction with a celebration of the composer’s centenary. The Salzburg production is the scenic premiere.

    “Stormy Interlude, a piece of social realism about a bored adolescent girl, was composed in 1955 and subsequently lost.”

    This doesn’t even make sense. The score sits snugly with the rest of Brand’s Nachlass at the Wienbibliothek im Rathaus (well, a couple blocks away from the Rathaus in the Musiksammlung).

    Meanwhile, Norman Lebrecht ascribes xenophobic assertions to Swedish authors: http://slippedisc.com/2016/05/classical-music-emergency-in-sweden/

    Shameful.
