JIWON: Kyril Zlotnikov, Mrs. Zukerman, and du Pre

Originally from Mr. & Mrs. Zukerman, Divan (Sic!)


Somehow, I don’t understand how Zukerman’s fourth(?) wife was able to openly interview that Du Pre was her idol. She says, she is a professional cellist. They say that she is making a heavenly ensemble with her husband.

Then she has no ear to listen to Du Pre’s ensemble with her lovely husband, who is hilariously destroying cellist’s talent? She has no eye to watch Du Pre’s miserable face during her performance with her proud maestro, Zukerman? Zukerman’s sitting posture was already rotten in those days. This foremost professional cellist has ever recognized this fundamental technique as a string player?

So weird, or so funny, or so purely political…

Somehow, I wonder why Zukerman’s wife’s early interview resembles Barenboim’s Divan’s.

Anyway, Your Zukerman article prompts me to write another two stories.
