New York Times give mixed review for Honeck's New York Phil debut

Written by Andrew Druckenbrod on .

The New York Times critic weighed in on Manfred Honeck's debut with the New York Philharmonic with a mixed review. Anthony Tommasini praised some of Honeck's interpretation but spent a great deal of the review questioning the programming -- more so the New York Phil itself, not Honeck. Some good points there, but a shame it had to come in the course of a review of Honeck's performance.

Could be I am saying this because I cover the Pittsburgh Symphony, for which Honeck is music director, and am a fan of his interpretations, though. In any case it is not quite the rave review many here in Pittsburgh were expecting. That came in the form of a review by I will add more reviews when I see them.
