A Classical Music Survivor

If I cannot remember everything it is because, as Schoenberg so brilliantly understood, life's most intense experiences survive in two forms of memory - as general impression and as sliver-sharp fragments, like shattered glass.

Norman Lebrecht reminds us that when he's not scrawling doomsday prophicies* he sure can write about the music. It would be nice to see him scale back the polemics and promote all the good things going on in classical music.

* "The end is extremely fucking nigh," written on a church wall in zombified London in 28 Days Later, should be in Lebrecht's handwriting.
