Norrington seems to divide opinion down the middle. Genius or misguided fool? Is the problem largely one of a hatred or a liking for 'period performance' or does the problem go deeper with Norrington (Hogwood seems to be pretty much accepted by everyone). I haven't heard any of his Hansler discs but have picked up a lot of Norrington on the Virgin Veritas label at very cheap prices on Amazon. His Beethoven was criticised for his, or rather Beethoven's metronome markings, it won awards. Is opinion coming to a concensus on Norrington or will he always be a maverick.
