It would be a daunting task for the director of Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg, West Virginia, to maintain that facility as the world’s most respected venue for classical music performance, but it ought to be easy for his New York counterpart to do the same. Carnegie Hall’s management, though, seems to be consciously watering down its repertoire and, in the process, transforming its employer’s image from that of the shining city on the hill to simply another unfocused performance space.
