The 25 Great American Symphonies

Sudip Bose: "For the sake of a nice, neat number, I am identifying 25 great works — hardly a comprehensive tally, and somewhat arbitrary. Looking over the finalists, I began second-guessing at once: Why no Virgil Thomson or David Diamond? Why Bernstein's First and not his Second? Why not Ives's Third? I have not, moreover, included symphonic works that do not bear the title Symphony; therefore, I have left out Samuel Barber's Essays and Joan Tower's Concerto for Orchestra.

The Changing Of The Guard At 'The Band's Visit': Tony Shalhoub Hands Off The (Actual) Baton

صورة

Gabay is the Israeli actor who originated the character of the stern and melancholy police officer Tewfiq, playing the role in the 2007 film from which the musical is adapted. 'I stole your performance,' Shalhoub replies genially. 'Acting is thievery.' ... We got the two Tewfiqs together to discuss why such a small film has had such impact and what the actors have learned, and can learn, from each other."

By requiring Internet platforms to perform automatic filtering all of the content that their users upload, Article 13 takes an unprecedented step towards the transformation of the Internet from an open platform for sharing and innovation, into a tool for the automated surveillance and control of its users. The damage that this may do to the free and open Internet as we know it is hard to predict, but in our opinions could be substantial.
