Re: “Thrilling Brahms Brings Audience — and Maestro — to Their Feet at Severance Hall

Certainly sounds like a critic waiting for bait. How exactly would you suggest an alternate program order? Would it make more sense for the rousing finish of the piano concerto to be interrupted with a long setup change for a ten minute work that didnt have much to offer aside from a palatable English horn part? If this self-important critic feels seems to have a history of praising the contemporary work (however cheap it may be) and bashing the standard repertoire. Praising the conductor, yet bashing the interpretation by blaming the musicians or composer. What about the conductors role in all of this? Was it not their responsibility to address the balance issues with the English horn and brass? The only mention of the conductor had nothing to do with his work, but of trivial concerns. A little bit of research wouldve informed this critic that the maestro has a spine problem which confines him to a chair at the podium, but I suppose why research when one can toss off a nice headline?
Unless the aforementioned clarinet solo was written for the second clarinetist, Im afraid that the critic failed to note that their new principal was the one playing. Emotionally flat horn playing? Certainly wasnt as one-dimensional as your criticism. This young journalist may have a way with words, but surely has little musical awareness. Grow up, young man.

Re: “Moving to Cleveland: A Guide on How to Leave Your Comfy White Suburb, Written by a White Guy Still Living With His Parents in a Comfy White Suburb

I remember when walking in Cleveland meant you better be from Cleveland becuz you would get your suburban ass stomped out in a heart beat. Thats the Cleveland I grew up in back in the 90s think gangsta rap. But now I live in a subburb and gave up the ignorant ways of my youth.

Re: “7 Concerts to Catch in Cleveland This Weekend

CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA, Brahms First Symphony. Step out of your comfort zone young hipsters, the greatest musicians in the world appear almost every week, at Severence or Blossom, and the Scene should add them EVERY WEEK to their highlight calendar. Arguably only NYC, LA, CHI and PHIL offer comparables, this is right under your nose, not offered to other hipsters in more envious locations, and you are missing it? They also have good drink offerings, pre-order to avoid lines at intermission. You are welcome.

Re: “The Organ’s Beauty Sparkles in a Refreshing Program of Copland, Paulus and Tchaikovsky

"Doddering"? Is this reviewer some type of meta-joke? If not, Scene, you are hurting you value by publishing this self-important and ridiculous rot. I attended the Saturday performance and the Tchaikovsky presentation was brilliant, I felt engaged throughout, a standout for me and I attend 1/3 of the subscription series every year. I never know which pieces I will find truly enjoyable, may be old or new, and this was a surprising delight. The emotions driving the composition were apparent in the work, aided by the context provided by the excellent program notes. Granted they are relatively expensive for a regular commitment, but I encourage your readers to coffee-up and attend occasionally, if not regularly, much better than spending similar $'s on aging boomer pop tours. Please don't waste further time indulging the efforts of Philip de Oliveira, life is too short. Wait, let me save you some time and make a prediction: in the next review, Philip de Oliveira will find significant portions of the next Orchestra performance terrible, clueless and/or trite.

Re: “Our Favorite Dumb Bad Yelp Reviews of Cleveland Restaurants

This is a completely and utterly worthless article. Wtf cares what you think of anyones review? Jesus if this was a blog in 2005 it would be tired. Oh when you allow crowds to comment you get less than expert press opinion. Thank Yelp cause I don't have to rely on insufferable sycophantic morons like you telling me how great the mustard bbq is. Does scene pay to create this level of content, cause I can write up a editorial on those damn data rates the cell carriers charge for some Xmas money. Pure garbage.

You didn't include the address! If you want people to visit before it closes, then you should include the current location.

Re: “Michael Stanley reads our Raspberries story, decides it sucks

This is and has always been a trashy,cheap,and unprofessional magazine. Just a bunch of hogwash! You have no clue about real music, talent, nor any clue what's really going on. Michael Stanley strung out? Lol he's probably one of the most cleanest, and drug free musicians I have ever met. You all are a disgrace to other journalists. What a joke! Are they even old enough to give an opinion on Wally Bryson or Eric Carmen? Let alone to give an opinion on great talent vs no talent? Your a bunch of knuckleheads winging it and just are completely clueless! Get a real job and make your education count. Mommy and Daddys college $ went to this? Really? What an embarrassment! Low budgeted cheap publication of crap! Isn't this magazine free? Lol Consider the source.

Re: “Godfather of Cleveland Dining: The 50-year Legacy of Carl Quagliata

A passionate man of integrity. Carl Quagliata has been the best employer of all the restaurants in which I have worked in my restaurant life of over 40 years. Thank you Carl. You are a true gentleman and a man to be respected. Others should take notes from Carls integrity and wisdom.
