  • A grey Sunday morning in Paris, this was so unexpected and I am so grateful for it. As I am for Slipped Disc. Thank you, Mr. Lebrecht.

  • It’s a fitting end of the story — history coming full circle. exil.arte is the perfect place for these artifacts to find their home.

  • She is singing in German, but this is pure Vienna.
    Edward Rothberg has said it well: “…this was so unexpected and I am so grateful for it, as I am for Slipped Disk. Thank you, Mr. Lebrecht.” Thank you.

  • I had the great pleasure of attending Marta Eggerth’s concert at the Neue Gallery in NY, when the great lady was 98-years-young ! I even got to meet her afterwards. It was a uniquely memorable occasion !
