Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

Witty and pertinent observations on matters of great significance OR Incoherent jottings on total irrelevancies OR Something else altogether OR All of the above

The Brodsky Quartet have had all their music stolen from a car in Haarlem.

I know how much music my amateur quartet has (I can only just carry it in a bag without wheels), and a professional one must have at least twice that, especially one which commissions so much new music. Even if they are sent replacement copies, all the bowings: gone. All the fingerings: gone. All the "turn page for cello" signs: all the "wait for viola" marks: gone, gone, gone.
