I've been reading music critics since the days of B. H. Haggin (that
eccentric but sometimes deeply insightful writer in The Nation)  and
even tried to do it myself for 5 or 6 years, for a newspaper that
allowed maybe 300 words per concert.  I just want to add my voice in
strong agreement to the letters of Jerry Kleinsasser, Bob Rideout,
Peggy Houdek and others whom I may have overlooked in praise of
Martin Bernheimer's excellence as a writer and critic. I have always
sought out his articles, knowing that they would be informative and
judicious, and that even when I might find myself hearing things
differently, it would be fun to read Martin's thoughts. I can think
of few professional critics writing today who are in his league, in
either erudition or charm. Which is not to say that I don't also
enjoy the sometimes vehement but interesting reactions of folks on
the opera list as well. Let many flowers bloom.
