TT: Second sight
Contentions, the Web site of Commentary, posted my second videoblog, taped in the living room of my Upper West Side apartment, on Friday. In it I discuss Alan Gilbert's recent appointment as music director of the New York Philharmonic, about which I've just written for the September issue of Commentary.
I also talk about Clement Greenberg and middlebrow culture, Luciana Souza's new CD, the inexplicable success of a Broadway show I panned, and one of my favorite pieces in the Teachout Museum, Milton Avery's March at a Table.
To watch this interview, go here.
Stick around to the very end--Robert Peach, the producer, tacked on a blooper! No, I didn't break anything....
