Bad Reviews

Common dismissals of the works of great composers by the critics of their day, from Nicolas Slonimsky’s Lexicon of Musical Invective (1965):

  • * “Barbarous”: Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Varèse, Wagner
  • * “Bizarre”: Beethoven, Berlioz, Bloch, Chopin, Liszt
  • * “Crude”: Beethoven, Berlioz, Miszt, Moussorgsky, Schumann
