After 25 years of worldwide fame, this quartet is coming to a crossroads. The cellist, whose wife died not too long ago, is diagnosed with Parkinson’s, which spells the end of his career. The husband-wife duo of second violin and viola are having relationship difficulties, and the first violinist refuses to relinquish any portion of his first-chair duties so that the second violist might have a chance to shine a bit.</p><p> Fri, 23 Nov 2012 05:31:05 +0000 Larry Thomas 6280 at http://wvxu.org Movie Review: A Late Quartet Review: Skyfall http://wvxu.org/post/review-skyfall <p></p><p>Other than politics of late, the other conversation-starter is always the release of the latest James Bond film. Everyone has opinions about the best and worst of the entire series, which now encompasses 23 films over the past 50 years. It doesn’t matter if you are staunch supporters of Sean Connery, or Roger Moore, or Pierce Brosnan or any of the others. All Bond fans are ready to sway you to their point of view.</p><p> Fri, 09 Nov 2012 05:32:05 +0000 Larry Thomas 5848 at http://wvxu.org Review: Skyfall
