Forza in the press

I don't usually agree with Jay Nordlinger's reviews, but find this -- from his review in today's NY Sun -- quite delightful:
If you don't like "Forza," you don't like Verdi. And you probably don't like the Italian repertoire. I won't go so far as to say you don't like life.
Well, I might.

When the NY Times, on the other hand, puts forth something as ridiculous as this, I mostly wish vilaine fille were posting more. My skill at invective is insufficiently sharp.

(Other press accounts from Bernheimer, Clive Barnes, and the AP's Mike Silverman.)

  1. Like Verdi: check.
    Don't like Forza: check.
    So much for that one.


Absolutely no axe-grinding, please.
