Boston Symphony Hall: The Birth of Architectural Acoustics

I’ve been a music critic in Boston for 36 years and wouldn’t have it any other way. There may be more going on in New York; Los Angeles may have more glamour; Cleveland and Chicago have symphony orchestras of comparable quality to the Boston Symphony Orchestra; and San Francisco and even Houston have more opera. Still, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Partly because there are so many dedicated Boston musicians who play on such a consistently high level but also because at least three of Boston’s major concert venues make music such a pleasure to hear, and one of them—Symphony Hall—is widely regarded as one of the great concert halls in the world.
