Diapason magazine

18th February 2010 | Books, Daily Life, Reviews | 0 comments

A nice surprise today: Bob came back from a meeting with a magazine page brought along by a colleague. It was from the February issue of the leading French record magazine Diapason, one of whose editors had taken the new Cambridge Companion to Recorded Music as the subject of his editorial. The Cambridge Companion, an expert anthology of chapters by historians and musicologists, also contains a number of short ‘personal takes’  by people with practical experience of the recording industry, and there’s one by me about my own experience of making records. To my surprise, this article was the focus of Diapason’s editorial. There was a photo of me and several paragraphs of my article translated into French. ‘Her text is an open door onto a work which gives us all the material for proper reflection on what nourishes our passion for recordings.’
