Valentina Lisitsa – YouTube
The world class pianist barred from playing with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra because of her tweets about the Ukraine conflict.
As if that had anything to do with her art. Shame on Toronto Phony!
With suppression of such art by a Western cultural institution we are all doomed! And where are all the phony Paris marchers from Charlie Hebdo today – Netanyahu, Helle Thorning Schmidt, Sarkozy, Angela Merkel, Poroshenko (oh no, she is critical of Ukraine’s government!)? Where did we hear “Je Suis Valentina”?
Long live freedom of artistic expression!
