TCR writer goes to the New York Times

October 24, 2012

Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim

Today’s review of The Tempest at the Metropolitan Opera will be the final contribution to The Classical Review by Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim, who will be going to work for The New York Times

Corinna was born in Germany and grew up in Brussels, where she studied the violin. She earned a B.A. in music and psychology from the University of London (Royal Holloway College) and a Ph.D in Italian literature from Cambridge University.

She completed an internship with the Associated Press in Jerusalem where she lived from 2000 to 2004. In 2004 she moved to New York where she began contributing to the Wall Street Journal, writing features, concert reviews, profiles, essays, blog posts and book reviews. Corinna lives in downtown Manhattan with her husband, Bret Stephens, columnist for the Wall Street Journal, and their three children.

In addition to possessing the best byline in New York, Corinna has provided bracingly intelligent, gracefully written, and candidly opinionated reviews to TCR over the past two years and she will be greatly missed. The good news is that she will gain a wider audience for her superb work and the Times could not have picked a finer writer to add to their music roster.

Best wishes to Corinna on her new assignment.
