Disgusted

Apparently, someone can't decide whether she wants to be a hooker or a professional violinist. Browsed through her website and there's quite a fair amount of vulgarities and unseemly language. Don't get me wrong, classical music isn't just for the high class people, but the way she portrays herself as a rowdy, punk kid is just so unacceptable of a professional classical violinist. Her CD covers makes me feel as if I'm browsing through some near-pornographic magazine out at the stands. Ok, even if her music is stunningly beautiful (which is far from it, unfortunately), I'll be embarrassed recommending it to friends, for they'll no doubt give me that incredulous look and contemplate whether I'm attracted to the music or CD cover. And I didn't like her interpretations of the tracks in her CDs one bit at all, and you can be sure that it wasn't due to my prejudice against her. I was treating the music as some professional recording, but I was terribly disappointed...

What irks me most is the fact that she has tainted the purity of the classical music scene. I seriously suggest that she should just consider changing profession, for I feel that the red light district suits her much better than a recording studio or concert hall...

Hey, we're not supposed to be mentioning any names here... But was I really that obvious? Hmm...

She's the only one I could think of with a hot CD cover!
