Sarkozy's first CD?


Channel Classics has the scoop. "In fact, no label had issued a (Beethoven) symphonic cycle in three years, and none was likely to do so again" as someone once told us.

My wife points out that President Sarkozy dyes his hair and Ivan Fischer does not. That thread continues here and the French first lady's musical connections are here. Report broken links, missing images and errors to - overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Also on Facebook and Twitter.

Fischer looks very much like Kevin Spacey on some of his CDs. Also, Yevgeny Sudbin resembles a Bushbaby or perhaps a rare Madagascan aye-aye. I have more such comparisons.
