I never thought of 'Brit' Take-Over for Larry King, Piers Morgan, as a 'classical' person, but his cheeky insightful statement, quoted above in Volume, "who once said her (Lindsey Stirling's) music sounded like 'rats being strangled' " hit a High Note right in the center of its high F pitch!!
In the unlikely event, Piers Morgan, visits Violinist.com, kudos are in order to Laurie Niles for her rather brilliant chic inclusion of Lindsey Stirling with Evanascence & a local orchestra in Charlotte, N.C., with Volume Magazine's Quote of the former CNN 'Live with Larry King' 'ex new guy', Piers Morgan, in his American Music Critic Debut alla 'Piers Morgan Style/UK'!!!
Bravo from a Jascha Heifetz Devotee!
