Sad stuff,,,and cheering stuff too

The sad stuff involves my two pieces in the Indy this week - a look at Chopin's thoroughly nasty side out today, and a review of the worst piano recital I've heard this year, out yesterday. The cheering stuff involves two great concerts coming up tomorrow in London and Leeds, and a wonderful Friday Historical video showing Cziffra playing Liszt's Gnomenreigen. Personally I'm off to ballet class. http://standpointmag.co.uk/node/2493

Fun Time?

My pal wrote an article about how someone criticised him for his "self-indulgent" hobby: playing the piano! What is the world coming to? Some angry words, plus a bit about Roger Scruton. http://standpointmag.co.uk/node/2492
