Newspapers and ukeleles
"Trying to be a first-rate reporter on the average American newspaper is like trying to play Bach's St. Matthew's Passion on a ukulele."
My immediate thought is that somebody, somewhere, is playing St. Matthew's Passion on a ukelele right this minute.
In fact, I was haranged for weary half hour very recently by a mandolin player who insisted his instrument does not get enough respect in the classical world and that he, personally, feels his Bach arrangements are underappreciated.
