Artistic Consumption Log, July 11, 2011-July 17, 2011

BROOKLYN, N.Y.—Sorry, folks, I'm just putting up titles for this week's artistic consumption log; I was too busy this weekend to have time to add my usual short commentaries. Hopefully next week's log will be more fleshed out.

To sum up this past week, though: For the most part, it was all live Bruckner, all the time. And much of that live Bruckner was sublime.
