More reason to rescind the award now -- he's a genocide denier and the committee shames itself by honoring this person.

Thanks LSO/Noseda for Shostakovich's mighty 7th Symphony: the 'Leningrad'. Could also be Dresden, Vukovar, Sarajevo, Grozny, Baghdad, Aleppo, Dhamar... Here's my article on those who played it under siege in Leningrad, 1942.

SHOCKING & OUTRAGEOUS FOOTAGE of death of Guatemalan boy in US Border Patrol custody. Bold Pro Publica gives the lie to the agency's account of what happened.

Salute András Schiff, who refuses to play in his native Hungary while fascist Orbán is PM. So Iván Fischer brings Budapest Festival Orch. to him in London, for shattering and beautiful Beethoven 5th Concerto. But how long can Schiff play HERE?

Well said. Utterly repulsive. Who at Amazon uploads this horror? Who makes them, for who to buy? It really is all over, isn't it?

"Rather disturbing and disrespectful" to put it very mildly. Shameful & revolting. But how and why do these repulsive, vile things come to exist in the first place? Speechless...

A recent marvel, this - listen to the Mellotron! - but echoes those pre-Velvet pieces - Sun Blindness Music, etc.

No hay vuelta atrás! “Y la culpa no era mía Ni dónde estaba, Ni cómo vestía. El patriarcado es un juez Que nos juzga por nacer, y nuestro castigo, es la violencia que no ve”. Un montaje…

During the siege of Sarajevo there was a surprising amount of live music and theatre. I love this justification. (From “The War is Dead, Long Live the War” by )

Agree with regard to this awful Labour lot — but, er ... lying and conniving a way to bloodbath with Bush, Cheney & Rumsfeld- “decent”?!?!
