Top 20 orchestra fallout - Philadelphia Orchestra

David Patrick Stearns, classical music critic with the Philadelphia Inquirer, asks (in this article) why the Philadelphia Orchestra didn't make the Gramophone Top 20 list and reasons that it has to do with the orchestra's ouster of Christoph Eschenbach. Also, he reveals that the two American critics involved in the list were Alex Ross of The New Yorker and Mark Swed of the Los Angeles Times.
