Why New York Review of Books? Varför NYRB??

Because of essays beginning with sentencies like this:
På grund av essäer som börjar så här:
"Of all composers who have made a permanent contribution to the standard concert repertoire and who have radically altered the subsequent history of classical music, Robert Schumann, whose bicentenary we celebrate this year, has inspired the greatest misunderstanding."
Etc... (Charles Rosen: Happy Birthday, Robert Schumann!)
