Yesterday there was an interesting programme on the relationship between literature and Schumann's music which was broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

For anyone who is interested, the programme is available to listen to for the next six days via the BBC Radio 3 website:

THanks for posting this John - that was - what else? - fantastic

I'll bookmark that BBC link - they have a few more shows on Schumann - one on Dichterliebe coming up this afternoon

and now I know how to say LITT-r-tuah

I listened in to it, meanwhile doing other homely stuff, but I noticed there were played these 2 different instruments, a rather offtune one, played by someone missing a note ore 3 here and there, and a crisp sounding one, played by a good pianist, probabely a recording, do you know who they were?
