Oh, you lucky, lucky people. Something very special is about to happen to your ears.
British art critic Brian Sewell, whose exotic parentage we explored late last year, was interviewed on BBC Radio about his passion for everyone’s favourite dead Bavarian, King Ludwig II. Hearing those extraordinary vowels work themselves around the idiosyncrasies of the Dream King is a pleasure of rare refinement. For me, learning that the child Ludwig claimed he couldn’t enjoy his food unless his hair was curled was a highlight, but there is no shortage of riches. Enjoy!
