“The 2016 winner of the prize in music criticism is Lucy M. Caplan, 26, unassuming, Harvard undergraduate, magna cum laude, principal violist of the Harvard-Radcliffe Orchestra”…Fellows at the symposium attended four performances and wrote a review of each. Students were then split into three groups, each with two critics who focused discussion on one student’s review.
Performances included the International Contemporary Ensemble playing Arthur Kampela’s No. I; the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra performing an all-Beethoven program; the San Francisco Symphony playing Mozart, Schumann, and Dvorak; and finally, The San Francisco Opera production of Janacek’s The Makropulos Case.”
