Just in: Barefoot diva is dead

  • Not a good weekend. First, Christopher Hitchens (unremarked here presumably because he never in my exposure commented on music in any way), then the luminous Evora, and then Havel. Each in his or her way a giant of civilised communication.

    Let’s hope that’s it for 2011.
