    Debussy Riot: Top 10 in Classical
    Creating a top 10 albums list for classical music is a rather odd task. Reviewing a year’s releases isn’t an accurate way of reviewing the best things that have happened in classical music that year. One of the best things I heard this year was the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra’s world premiere of Nicolas Campogrande’s “Urban Gardens for Piano and Orchestra” in September, but no matter how much I long to listen to the jazz-inspired concerto again, there is no recording of it. Another one of my favorite performances was the Baltimore Symphony’s incredible “Bernstein & Beethoven” concert last month—although luckily for those who missed it, the BSO recorded the concert for an upcoming CD, and I’m certain that will be a top contender on a future top 10 list. Until then, here’s a list of the recordings that I found particularly gorgeous or memorable or intellectually interesting as I began my foray into classical-music criticism this year.
