Music While U Wait

While Election Night drags on into Election Morning, here are two wonderful musicians to meet and hug.

Last Friday I went to Madrid to meet Juan Diego Florez, who's singing at the Barbican tonight and at the ROH from 17 May. Here's the article from today's Independent. Actually he is nothing like Pavarotti, but his voice is a miracle in its own right.

Violinist Gil Shaham is heading for London next week. I had a chat with him for the JC.

These guys can make us all feel better, no matter the precise cause of our upset.
