A Bamboo Needle on a Shellac of Chopin

Contrasting views on Il Sogno, Elvis Costello's foray into orchestral music, from Alex Ross (con) and Terry Teachout (pro). They both seem to be agreed that he's good at the orchestrations, which shouldn't be so suprising as he has been orchestrating on his pop albums for years. Otherwise, total split opinion.

Sorry for the lack of posting action after I got you all het up last week. Deadline-crazed week. More substance soon.
