  • Oh no! The ARD music competition takes place every year in four different categories from end of August until mid of September.

  • No other blogger has the “talent” to drive on nationalistic divisiveness like Norman Lebrecht. Nobody gives a fuck about Brits or Germany in this regard, this is a music competition, may the best musician win. But somehow in this blog we keep getting these irrelevant brain damaging, mankind poisoning headlines…

    • Perhaps this is an Olympics hang-over? Looks like the Olympics medal standings to me, with “Team GB” in sixth instead of second.
