“The centenary of World War I has garnered little attention in America, but elsewhere there is daily news of the past’s horrors. Friday, for instance, was the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Hill 60. And in the Board of Officers Room at the Park Avenue Armory, war’s echoes resounded again, in a devastating concert by Ian Bostridge and his superb pianist, Wenwen Du.”
