    When Sérgio and Odair Assad joined the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra for two concerts at the Adelaide Guitar Festival in Australia this past weekend, the performance was "one of the most exhilarating on record" for the ASO, according to the Adelaide Advertiser. The program featured Ravel's Rhapsodie Espagnole, which showcased the syncopated rhythms "the Brazilian brothers have in their blood, along with a sense of lyricism rare among their kind." Also on the program were selections from Sérgio's arrangement of Piazzolla's Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, which, complementing the orchestra's strings and winds, was "drawn even further into the Argentinian ambiance by the warmth and clarity of the two guitars."

    The managing editor of the Onion's A.V. Club, Josh Modell, recently caught a sneak preview of Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood, and while it's not the official A.V. Club review (look for that closer to the film's December 26 release), he had a few fine words on the movie: "[N]ot only did I see the best film of the year—in a walk—but maybe one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. This isn’t the official A.V. Club take ..., but I’d be surprised if any of our crack film reviewers will find it anything less than a masterpiece."

    Best Movie of 2007. That's what Roger Friedman of foxnews.com is calling the Tim Burtondirected Sweeney Todd "... without a doubt." He's a longtime fan of the musical and has been a fan of the film from his first look at a critics screening. After last night's premiere, he can confirm that "Everything about it is just perfect ... There were a thousand wrong turns Burton and crew could have taken, but somehow they avoided them. They condensed a complicated three-hour show into a highly entertaining two hours without missing a beat."
