|Spam And Solti
||[Nov. 10th, 2012|09:55 am]
As always I begin my day on LJ by clearing out some of the spam that has accumulated over night. I doubt if I get it all. For some reason the spamsters are particularly drawn to a short post about rhubarb I wrote earlier this year.|
Last night I found myself watching a programme about Sir Georg Solti. It was called Maestro or Mephisto? but really we were only given the one choice. A percussionist complained that Solti tried to get the Royal Philharmonic to play like an American band when it wanted to be British but apart from that there was never a whiff of sulphur. Dame Kiri hinted that he may have been a bit of a one for the ladies but only in the nicest possible way.
