“Iacta alea est”
(The die is cast) – Julius Caesar.

Well, at least David Fleshler of the South Florida Classical Review thinks so. With his top-ten nominees ranging from Michael Tilson Thomas and the New World Symphony in Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 and Florida Grand Opera’s Turandot to note-worthy pans like: “Cleveland Orchestra for using their in-house pianist for an underwhelming performance of Bernstein’s Age of Anxiety”  the list, while not exhaustive, covers both university and professional productions.

Fleshler graces us with a brief synopsis of selections. Not too long of a read, direct, specific and decisive! Hmmmm, maybe we should have him write the libretto for opera?… Get more of Fleshler’s 2010 re-cap at: http://southfloridaclassicalreview.com/2010/12/top-10-performances-of-2010/
