Private Passions

Radio 3’s Private Passions is always insightful. The edition with Philippe Sands shows that he too “delights in all manifestations of the Terpsichorean muse”(see Muzak)—Leonard Cohen, Michael Chance singing Erbarme dich

(see also here and here), Bruno Walter conducting Mahler 9 in 1938, and Let’s pretend we’re bunny rabbits. Actually, the latter isn’t such a kitsch choice as its title suggests, but hey.

My post A Nazi legacy encompasses Sands’ harrowing film and book.
