It's almost fall, and you know what that means: Pittsburgh's classical scene is about to return to full force. Prep for the busy concert schedule with a few pieces from the world of music journalism:

From the Boston Globe, the Boston Symphony's music director Andris Nelsons and the role of the orchestral conductor 

From the New York Times, the staging of rape scenes in modern opera productions 

From San Francisco Classical Voice, an interview with the Louisville Symphony's 28-year-old music director, Teddy Abrams 

From WQXR, why new operas rarely get revivals!/story/why-do-contemporary-operas-rarely-get-revivals/
