Bernstein’s Mess

In lieu of a parterre box review of Mostly Mozart’s Mass (none of the our bullpen showed any interest in taking the piece on), here’s what Zachary Woolfe has to say: “I think that if it’s not [Bernstein’s] worst, it surely reflects his worst tendencies: his allergy to self-editing, his saccharine streak, his embarrassing wordplay, his obsession with (and tone-deafness toward) youth culture, his weak counterfeits of pop styles.” [New York Times]
