Another case of newspaper vs. music critic. This time, though, the paper hasn't laid off its critic; they've merely forbidden him to write about the orchestra anymore.
Donald Rosenberg, long-time music critic of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, was reassigned in September. He will no longer be reviewing the Cleveland Orchestra, probably because he was not often pleased with the work of music director Franz Welser-Most, and said so.
The classical guitar piece at 4 p.m. today was not whatever the MPR announcer called it, but a mangled version of Tarrega's Memories of the Alhambra.
