New York or Berlin: Which is better for musicians?

The violinist Jennifer Koh (pictured) tells WQXR that she weighed the two options and chose New York for its creativity.

Our string quartet diarist Anthea Kreston is having a whale of a time in Berlin – at least she was until yesterday’s incident – and prefers smalltown environments to New York.

So where’s better for a fiddle person to live – a city that doesn’t break your arm to pay health care? or one that promises the sky and sometimes delivers?

Your call.

    Berlin: if you’re interested in a rapidly declining quality of life.
