Abstract (Document Summary)

2. Twilight: Los Angeles 1992. [Anna Deavere Smith] upped the ante on her own brand of docu-theater with this dizzying one-woman, multi-character account of the tumultuous Rodney King trial aftermath. 3. As You Like It. Shakespeare's Forest of Arden received a zingy shot of testosterone when England's Cheek by Jowl company brought its buoyant, all-male production to BAM. 4. Love! Valour! Compassion!. This tender and funny study of eight gay men sharing summer holiday weekends proved to be the apex of [Terrence McNally]'s rangy 30-year career.

Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, "Shostakovich: Symphony No. 14." Perhaps Shostakovich's most sombre and original symphony, this hour-long meditation on death scored for soprano, bass and a chamber orchestra heavy on the percussion gets an idiomatic and altogether top-class reading from Ljuba Kazarnovskaya and Sergei Leiferkus, under the baton of Neeme Jarvi. Thomas Hampson, Cheryl Studer, John Browning, "Samuel Barber: Secrets of the Old" (2 discs). Now this is heartening: a major record label and two acknowledged superstars joining forces to pay tribute to an important American composer who was actually alive and creating during their lifetimes!
