Thursday, Aug. 3, 2006 | Re: “Unwelcome Detour,”by Rachel Garrett. Au contraire, Ms. Garrett, a bit of snark regarding the state of our local arts criticism is a very welcome detour. There is little middle ground between vapid publicity n as exemplified by the glossier life style magazines n and obnoxious pedantry n as exemplified, indeed, if not reaching a sour apotheosis with your oddly esteemed Jonathan Saville, a critic who has yet to meet a piece of experimental or modern music that he doesn’t despise. Despite that, he is fun to read, an all too rare characteristic.
