SELF-CRITICISM, by Sandor Slomovits
Her neighbors, probably concluding that it would create more disturbance to ask her to keep her asinine assessments to herself, focused on the magnificent music and mostly managed to tune her out. But a couple of trenchant remarks were unavoidably noted. Her response to "Paths of Parables", five classic Sufi tales accompanied by complex and evocative modern music was, "These are stupid stories." Finally, when she dismissed Chinese virtuoso, Wu Tong's reed wind instrument, the Sheng, as "that stupid mouth organ," the critique seemed right on the money-of the critic.
