But Brian Reinhart didn't say he thought his own music should have been written down and recorded, he's puzzled that Catalani's (or at any rate "Ero e Leandro") should have been so, and I thought he found a very amusing way of saying it. It's true that a review like that won't encourage anyone to buy the record, but if he had stuck to well-worn critical clichés ("a colourful but poorly-constructed and highly derivative work" etc) the result would have been the same, it would just have been less interesting to read.
