That means the box office door is open pretty wide for films scheduled for this holiday season. And it is certainly an intriguing group, with a high-profile sci-fi sequel (“Tron: Legacy”), the third in the “The Chronicles of Narnia” series (“The Voyage of the Dawn Treader”), some films generating Oscar buzz (“Black Swan,” “The King’s Speech”), some romantic comedy (“How Do You Know”) and a Western as filtered through the lens of the Coen brothers (“True Grit”).

Guitar teacher Gregory doesn’t sound like he wants to be very “realistic.” He just wants to maximize his students’ potential for expressing themselves with a guitar. “Teaching guitar is a survival skill,” says the working jazz-blues guitarist, with the blisters on his fingers to prove it. “These are my kids. They’re important to me. I can teach ’em chords and scales, but that’s not music. I want to teach them how to make a living playing music. I try to give them the tools so that, if I’m not here today, they have the tools to pursue it they way they want to.”.

Alsop made the performance a deep, dreamlike immersion, from the wisps of sound that usher it in to the fierce passagework that drives it home. The orchestra sounded brilliant, and the Attacca players — Amy Schroeder and Keiko Tokunaga (violins), Nathan Schram (viola), and Andrew Yee (cello) — played with taut precision. One of the complaints that followed the work’s early performances was that the quartet’s sound was swallowed by the orchestra; here, you could hear everything.
