Further to Ligeti's Violin Concerto at the Proms [original piece here]. A friend of Steve Cranfield's saw the performance from a choir seat behind the orchestra/soloist and had the following to say: "Yes, Tamsin Little was great and she did have a computer screen which changed as she played - it probably has a microphone and can tell when she's played the notes. Amazing! ... This was the best piece of the concert. I didn't stay for the Stravinsky: shocking some middle Englanders next to me. 'You're not staying for the 'Rite of Spring'?' 'No', I said, 'I want to carry the Ligeti around for a while.' " Courtesy of
