  • While Barack Obama was in Germany, John McCain went to a German restaurant in Ohio. Almost the same. As Le Monde correspondent Corine Lesnes puts it -- "Who said that Barack Obama has troubles with beer drinkers? Not in Germany, in any case, to judge by this button." One of the commenters adds, "What will we get when he visits the red light district in Amsterdam?" [The Big Picture]

  • Jessica Duchen lists her top picks for the Proms. [Jessica Duchen]

  • Don't worry, readers of Lisa Hirsch -- she was here in Santa Fe this week, where I met her, and will be back home very soon. [Iron Tongue of Midnight]

  • Tyler Green wrote an article about the future of the National Gallery of Art for Washingtonian. It is finally online. [Modern Art Notes]

  • American composer Norman Dello Joio is dead at age 95. [Sequenza 21]

  • Matthew Guerrieri has an excellent series of posts on the Elliott Carter extravaganza engineered by James Levine at Tanglewood. [Soho the Dog]

  • For a contrasting view, Sieglinde links to a hysterical anti-Carter diatribe published by a paper in the Berkshires. Welcome back, Sieglinde! [Sieglinde's Diaries]
