RECENT: Defining Our Field - what is 'classical music' to us, why are we involved and what can we learn from our differences? Read John Dante Prevedini's essay, watch the panel discussion and make your own comments.
The late Patric Standford may have written these short pieces deliberately to provoke our feedback. If so, his success is reflected in the rich range of readers' comments appearing at the foot of most of the pages.
British pianist Rosalind Runcie, born Angela Rosalind Turner on 23 January 1932, grew up in Cambridge (as daughter of the Bursar of Trinity Hall) then studied at the Guildhall School of Music in London.
In 1957 she married the Dean of her father's college, Robert Runcie (who later became a controversial Archbishop of Canterbury), but continued to give recitals in the UK and the USA, raising many thousands of pounds for charity. She died on 12 January 2012, aged 79.
