What Valentina Lisitsa did nextmain
The US- based Ukrainian pianist, who jeopardised her career with outspoken approval of Putin’s invasion of her homeland, is now working with the American composer Stephen Limbaugh.
Ring any bells?
Limbaugh, who bills himself ‘the greatest pianist in the world’, is a cousin of the rightwing radio shlock-jock Rush Limbaugh. He gets plugs on the Rush show.
His music is simplistic, nationalist, static, background bar-room stuff. Try half an hour of it here. Almost 19,000 listeners have done so already and many find it uplifting.
Even more disturbing is how easily Putinist aggression now sits with Trumpist braggardry.
