    “Kaufmann” means “merchant” in German, and Mr. Jonas is a precious ware for gossip merchants, indeed! 🙂

      All the downthumbers should ask themselves for 4’33” – what would Slipped Disc be without gossip about Mr. Merchant? 🙂

        All the other interesting comments were removed; a salient symbol of this blog altogether!! Remove anything remotely interesting or controversial and concentrate on gossip. For example, “Carlos Kleiber not a great conductor”. That sort of thing.

          I fail to see how a publicly posted photo of a celebrated tenor’s wedding consists of gossip. For a wonderful singer who has given us joy, and who responds with grace and warmth to his fans, does this not give us an opportunity to wish him joy in return?

    At least he didn’t cancel that performance. (Just kidding. Here’s hoping it’s a happy union.)
