A message from the Met’s music director, playing Schubert with his partner at their home in Montreal:




  • Talking the talk says:

    Who benefits most?

  • Violafan says:

    Handsome couple

  • Gustavo says:

    Their lamp looks like a corona virus.

  • WillymH says:

    Not being a Pollyanna here but what exactly do people get from the snide comments and negativity? If they were at least witty or epigrammatic it could be considered cocktail chatter rather than just unaccountable bitterness.

    • Joe says:

      You’re not being a Pollyanna – you’re just being emotionally intelligent. And as for their lamp, when I saw it, I though it looked like one of the Met’s bubble chandeliers. 🙂

    • Karl says:

      The world is ending. Let people blow off steam. Watch Dr. Strangelove.

    • Talking the talk says:

      Thank you WillymH, and further narcissists anonymous could be in high demand during this current global crisis, cocktail chatter and the well judged epigram could just provide the much longed for salvation for these afflicted souls and even more, for us all in these coming days.

  • Karl says:

    Can I come over guys?

  • RW2013 says:

    Not the time for viola jokes…

  • Tom says:

    Sweet. But bloody terrible viola playing.

  • Ken says:

    Oooooooh. Shade much?
