Alice Tully Hall: Test Drive

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

New York magazine classical music and architecture critic Justin Davidson likened Alice Tully Hall original design to "a highbrow speakeasy, as if there were something furtive about all that chamber music going on inside." Davidson joins us to review the design and acoustics of Lincoln Center's overhauled concert venue.

I wonder if historians and architects will someday look back and decry the defacing of the original Lincoln Center. It looks great to contemporary eyes but since it's such a radical redesign, will it someday seem like good intentions gone overboard?

Why wasn't the auditorium reconfigured to add a center aisle?
