I find his vibrato beautiful - it's rather mean to go on so much about his looks. He's a musician not a glossy clothes horse.

Some string players, (in black mourning the death of pitch perfect singing?) sat stunned into silence by the ineptitude of what they were accompanying, perhaps wondering if occasionally playing some long quiet notes was worth the expense and inconvenience of showing up. The audience's reaction was muted, hardly surprising. I've heard cheerier death rattles. At least I missed the bumptious buffoon Kermode. Sat 17 Jan 2009 00:44:47 GMT+1
