Hi. On the Dutch radio4, a classical channel, someone ( Lex Dirkse) makes cartoons of me as Vieuxtemps, my nickname on the forum of radio4. http://forum.radio4.nl/
Here are some pictures. I will try to translate the words near the pictures:
Here I asked for Vieuxtemps for the last 4 days of the year (Radio4daagse)= radio 4 days where they play from 7 -23.00 hour the most popular classical music. They did not select my favorite compser Vieuxtemps. I say "au" = you hurt me. "Ook niet 1 deel uit een concert" = even no single part of a Vieuxtempsconcerto?
I was on the dutch tv. They asked me about my safety equipment. Here the words on the picture:
Could we expect from mr. Vieuxtemps soon a beautiful piece of music? Eh.. I was thinking about "the wintertravel" from Schubert.
I wrote about young female good-looking violinists: they play standarddirt like the 4seasons, so here are the words: From the standarddirt we play summer and autumn.
In the new cd-discussion programm "discotabel" they say: I rather hear Vieuxtemps riding on skates than an ape who is playing the composer Litolff.
After the recital in the AMsterdam Concertgebouw there was some unrest on the streets:
They play much too much romantic repertoire!! Too less! I want more Chopin!! Be quiet aginst this Beethoven-fanatic. What?
LOL You look like a Transformer with all that hockey equipment on the outside!
