Two USC faculty members, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Tim Page and New York Philharmonic concertmaster Glenn Dicterow, present an open discussion about the relationship between artists and critics.
Page and Dicterow will delve into the relationship between an artist and critic: How do first-class performers view critics? What is the role of criticism for a performer? Do critics and performers ever see eye to eye? Does one serve the other?
Tim Page is a professor at both the Thornton School of Music and the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at USC. He won the Pulitzer Prize for criticism in 1997 for his writings about music in The Washington Post, where he has held the position of chief classical music critic since 1995.
After more than three decades of service as concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic, Glenn Dicterow joins the faculty of the Thornton School in 2013 as the first holder of the Robert Mann Chair in Strings and Chamber Music, forging a new chapter in a distinguished, multifaceted career.
