Here's an interesting article about Krystian Zimerman.
He took exception to being filmed by a member of the audience
whilst he was playing some Szymanowski in Essen last Monday.

I saw that article too and to my surprise it seems that filming and recording albeit with crap equipment is allowed in concert halls nowadays and if the performer objects and the person with the recorder refuses then it is just too bad, the pianist has to play/ refuse to play whilst the person with the apparatus waits patiently to continue. it seems that the hall authorities cannot stop them recording secretly or as in this case, less secretly.
I would really like to know the truth about all this as obviously it could happen to any one of us whether we want it or not. Maybe we can force the person to hand over a sum of cash to record in the hall when we don't particularly want them to, I really don't know.

If it's done clandestinely and not later shared publicly on YT or
elsewhere, it seems to me to be a perfectly harmless activity.

Today (Monday), Wednesday, and Friday this week sees the
staging ON THE BEACH at the Aldeburgh Festival of Britten's
masterpiece Peter Grimes, as the highlight of his centenary
celebrations. Daft idea or what? :-)

I don't normally mix other interests of mine across unrelated fora,
but here's an exception to that rule, because of its link to music.

Isn't this the most appropriate instrument on which to play Scarlatti's
Cat's Fugue?

Each cat yells out a different note when its tail is struck by a hammer
attached to the keyboard. The harder each note is struck, the more
pain each cat feels, and hence the louder the yell. Brilliant idea!
