(Not for the squeamish.)
A Hong Kong musician, Henry Chau Hoi-leung, killed, chopped, salted and microwaved his mother and father, all the while listening repeatedly for 30 days to Alexander Scriabin’s peculiar, phone-ring piano suite, Vers la Flamme.
Chau, 31, was handed a life sentence. The judge said: ‘You fail in everything but the piano.’
Let’s not blame Scriabin, right?
