Reading Watching Listening

Reading…

The Deep Blue Sea by Terence Rattigan. I went to the NTLive broadcast of this play last week and it has been haunting me ever since. Achingly good.

 

Watching…

Off Camera with Sam Jones. I’ve just been watching this in bits and pieces while getting ready or eating lunch. Jones isn’t necessarily the most articulate interviewer, but there is something about his approach and the format of these interviews that gets subjects to open up in really interesting ways about their professions. I love that Jones kind of circles around similar questions with a lot of his guests. I am really fascinated by the ways artists and performers approach their crafts and how these differ or don’t differ between fields and individuals, and this si something these interviews really get into.

 

Listening…

Angela Hewitt’s newest recording of the Goldberg Variations. Recording a version of this is incredibly impressive. Recording a second version? I’m not sure I have a word for that. Hewitt is a phenomenal talent, and this recording is a total joy.
