I now have a pdf file of the Chamber Music Magazine article in case you are interested. Send me an email: and I will gladly send you a copy.

One person responding commented on the courage that it takes for amateurs who know that their "bodies" are imperfect to get up and play together with others. I should say so!

In my experience persons with less than perfect bodies often play and sing most beautifully. Have you heard Thomas Quasthof?
