Please allow me an "Andy Rooney" moment.
As a classical music announcer, I spend a lot of time searching the Web for current information about musicians to share with you, the listener.
What I find a little irritating is that many big-name classical stars--those who probably have "people" to handle these things--don't keep their websites updated. A household-name pianist's calendar claims, "No tour dates are currently scheduled, please check back soon." Oh, really? Or a major violinist's website reads, "In the 2006-2007 season, he will be touring Asia."
So, if you're a big name star reading this blog, help me help you. Update your website, so I can sound "with it" and well-informed, and listeners can know you're still alive and working.
