A Chicago violinist with a non-secret diary

John Von Rhein writes today in the Chicago Tribune about the Artemis Quartet and its new American violinist, Anthea Kreston, who is rapidly adjusting to life in Berlin and on the road.

He makes some errors – ‘she has performed several months (!) on tour with the Artemis Quartet’ – and overstates the obvious: ‘Kreston’s accession to the ensemble means that the Artemis members now are evenly divided among the sexes.’ He also somehow fails to mention that Anthea chronicles her transition from Oregon to Berlin in compelling detail in a widely-read weekly diary.
