Examiner 2010 Year in Review

Having now examined Joshua Kosman’s review of classical music in 2010 for the San Francisco Chronicle, I cannot resist the urge to perform this exercise myself. However, I want to begin by making a case for playing this game by different rules. Regular readers of my Rehearsal Studio blog probably know of my very strong aversion to “rank-ordering just about anything on the basis of quality” (my favorite example being our national obsession with the “Big Five” American orchestras); so I have no intention of trying to review 2010 in terms of a “Top 10” list of events. By the same count I want to do my best to avoid adjectives like “most” and “least” as well as “best” and “worst.”
