As I sat here this morning I thought how well we are served by the arts here in uk. I listened to BBC Radio Three (sanity in a mad world!) and heard Sran Getz, followed by a beautiful reading of W H Auden's poem Musee des Beaux-Arts by Paul Scofield, and then a very moving piece by Ysaye played by Maria Duenas a violinist on the excellent New Generation Artists scheme. This was just before 8 this morning should you want to hear it and have access.
At a window on a quiet morning in a small rural village in Scotland I can have such a rich start to my day at the click of a a button.
I am off somewhere even quieter for a few days - can probably still get Radio 3 ...
