I was wondering if anyone else had noticed.

Indeed, yes.

Of course, it was very much news here (Il Cavaliere did conduct the LSO for a time, after all; and carried a baton with the Halle early on).

Certainly I remarked the death; as I did that of Lord McAlpine, whom I shall miss terribly, but who at least lived long enough to see his name cleared and that utter cow, Sally Bercow, humbled.

100% unreconstructed Communist, I remember his premiere of Luigi Nono's opera in praise of the Paris Commune being massively advertised at the expense of the left-wing city administration in Milan when I was a child. Fine musician.

Oh, quite.

One simply discounts the fact, with almost all musicians & visual artists. So long as no one else takes their inanities seriously outwith their proper province.
