Who Killed Haydn?
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Sep 16, 2016
Although it’s old news, it’s worth repeating and sharing once again. Pianist and conductor, Christian Zacharias stopped playing in the middle of Haydn’s Piano Concerto, interrupted by a cell phone ringing for the second time the same concert. In this short video he talks about the impact that such an interruption can have for both performer and listener. Thanks to kleindorf for the link. 


Berlin Pix

Tony Levin has uploaded some more pictures to his web diary, including this rather moody and magnificent shot of the team about to go on stage in Berlin.



Check out the whole gallery here. Meanwhile, our thanks to HarryPipco for bringing this review of Stuttgart (in German).

Scam Warning

Next month in Córdoba, Argentina, sees what Robert Fripp describes as his “final Guitar Circle undertaking in Latin America in the foreseeable future. Time to move on.”



The Symphony Of Crafty Guitarists II is hoping to attract 100 people to undertake a week of working together and a public performance on Thursday 20th October. Places for the SOCGII are still available. Details on how to apply can be found here. 

Berlin And Aylesbury Reviewed
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Sep 13, 2016
Our thanks to guestbook regular Davidly who was went to the trouble of translating a review of King Crimson that originally appeared in Berliner Zeitung. David writes "Here is my translation of what I find to be the, uh, germane part of Christian Schlütter’s review of Berlin, evening number one, from Berliner Zeitung (it’s a rough translation, but much better than Google).

Straightaway the deeper meaning of the armada of drums reveals itself. Robert Fripp, the guitar and keyboard playing co-founder and only remaining founder of King Crimson, has a penchant for repetition, most often modest arpeggios or pentatonic scales that he plays relentlessly in succession on the guitar, varied slightly with each passage. Out of this arises rhythmically and harmonically complex structures, sometimes consonant, sometimes dissonant, that grind and translate the material into festoons of sound. Through this incessant repetition, Fripp liberates the differences. This occurs in nothing less than ideal fashion in the pieces "Larks’ Tongues in Aspic" and "Fracture".

Now, the polyrhythmic coordination of the three drummers propels this subversive mechanism further ahead: They strengthen the already twisted, seldom in 4/4 Fripply created compositions. In short, Robert Fripp has with his new percussion heavy lineup of King Crimson — already the eighth in the band’s history — collected an ensemble with which he can demonstrate his minimalist compositional principle in analytical clarity.

Meanwhile, here's a review of the second night at Aylesbury to take a look at.
