This is our favorite video from the Rubin Institute at Oberlin College back in January. Why? Well, Tim Page’s keynote, “Be Your Own Critic,” was great. But the top reason it’s our favorite? … because we are in it! Larry is featured at 33:34; Arlene steps in at 35:30; and we are both in a final audience panel at 43:45. It was great fun. Check it out.

Met Opera exec Peter Gelb’s recent self-induced kerfuffle with music critics brought us back to thinking about our experience in January at the Rubin Institute for Music Criticism at Oberlin College. We originally wrote the piece below with the idea it would run on the ICE blog.

On criticism and public discourse. An excellent piece inspired by the Rubin Institute, full text here.
