Day 2 PCR Testing...... here we go again......

From today Day 2 PCR Testing is required for all returning to the UK. We hope this is just a temporary measure while the threat of the Omicron variant is assessed. Meanwhile, we have reviewed ©Which Magazine's 'best buy' list and this that the 'not for profit' Testing For All https://www.testingforall.org/ looks to offer very good value at £48 (and £19 for pre-flight Antigen testing).

5* review for Vasily's final Royal Liverpool recording

An extract from Norman Lebrecht's glowing review of Vasily's final recording as Chief Conductor of Royal Liverpool...... 

"… Zemlinsky and Schreker went way over the top in their exploitation of orchestral texture, splashing every colour in the paintbox and squeezing the last drop of curdled angst from the interstices of strings and woodwinds, with violin solos to gloop it all together.

It’s deliciously forbidden stuff, breaking several rules of common decency and so gender incorrect that the current thought police will fine anyone they hear whistling it.

Needless to say, this Covid-year album by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and their departing conductor Vasily Petrenko is demonstrably irresistible. Played with no stops pulled or holds barred, this is a wash of sound we have been dying to hear, if not in a live hall then on record. And when we do get back into a hall, I will be the first in line demanding to know why orchestras don’t play sounds like these that wet our lips, instead of tick-box works by marginal try-hards. Bring back orchestral decadence, all is forgiven"
