The Philadelphia Orchestra didn’t make Gramophone’s Top 20 list of the world’s best orchestras. I guess that’s the led-by-a-guy-dressed-like-a-penguin-music world’s BCS standings or something. I guess Philadelphia was knocked out by Boise State or didn’t win enough in-conference Vivaldi concertos.
Don’t fret, woodwinds. None of the other cities listed in the Top 20 won the World Series this year.
Suck on those fermatas, Vienna.
