Boy's night in (sort of)

J was attending a friend's daughter's wedding last night so I stayed in and enjoyed a Bruch Violin concerto from the Proms and a French comedy (Rien sur Robert) on BBC4. The violinist Leila Josefowicz had the full range of facial expression you might expect of a rock guitarist. Plenty of gurning and snarling and well as the occaisonal surprised look as if she had no idea what was coming out of her instrument. The Bruch No.1 is great fun to listen to anyway, but the facial theatrics didn't hurt.
