  • Mark Henriksen says:

    Thank you for slipped disc!

    Lang Lang

  • Rob McAlear says:

    None of the above. I’d wager a blonde female pianist who dabbles in political commentary on social media.

  • Minutewaltz says:

    Happy New Year to all of the above – and Norman!

  • Victor Polanco says:

    Thanks Norman!
    From Buenos Aires I wish you a Happy New Year.
    Yours truly,
    Victor Polanco.

  • Marg says:

    Peter Gelb and the Met probs certaInly generated a ton of comments at various times. Happy New Year Norman and thx for the daily update.

  • Nick says:

    I certainly wouldn’t dream of calling Peter Gelb an “artist”! But it has to be between him and Lang Lang with the vast majority of comments being on the negative columns!!

  • Dave T says:

    Got to be Gelb and the Met.
