ROBERT H. RIVKIN
ROBERT RIVKIN (R.H.R) is another rank amateur and humbly proud of it.
neither plays an instrument well nor sings well. He therefore feels that
understands performance from a unique perspective and is fully qualified
comment on others' efforts. He has been collecting recordings for over
years, and has attended live performances in most of Western Europe,
Scandinavia, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Israel, Russia, and the US, where
makes his home in his birth place of Baltimore. Depending on the given
he may be teaching courses in French, Impressionist Art, or French Opera,
taking courses in making mosaics and stained glass. In his semi-retirement
he currently teaches Latin at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
For several years he has carefully resisted R.E.B.'s and K.M.s cajoling
write reviews, preferring to offer copious technical assistance to
classicalcdreview.com's web master. He still cannot figure out how he got
duped into starting to produce reviews here, but contributes happily.
