. most importantly, me & Pheobe will be having toad in the hole for tea - have pre-cooked the sausages & made the Yorkshire pudding batter - now onto the gravy....

. todays post arrivals include this latest bbc archive recording disc of Jacqueline Du Pre - apart from the great live version of the Elgar cello concerto, it is fantastic to hear here playing the Rubbra sonata (with her mother Iris at the piano) & Rainer's often overlooked cello concerto too. Personally I doubt that the cello will ever have such a player to bring it to full-flowing, over-flowing life again.

. books arrived to on the work of two czech artists: the photographer Jaroslav Rossler & Karel Teige - what a pleasure to listen to Du Pre & look through these books at the same time !
