    I’ve never really understood the tremendous fuss made over Imogen Cooper: she’s good, yes, but (IMHO) no better than plenty of others, and those with a much more imaginative repertoire.
    There’s more to life than endless Schubert with a bit of Janacek thrown in, great as they both are. Good connections? Someone tell me, preferably politely, what it is I’m missing: is there more than mere mystique?

    Congrats, Alice!

  • Alexander T says:

    Nothing special. Very average.
