The Failblog keeps on givin', folks (this time via Collaborative Piano). You'll recognize the hapless violist as our hero Yuri Bashmet—I'm not sure what piece that is; the comments section here tells us it's the "Concerto-Poeme" by Roman Medneyev (see update below), but I can't find any information on a composer by that name. The instrument, we're told, is a 1758 Testore. I'm sure it's fine now. UPDATE: I think the piece is the Poema (or "Concert-Poem") by Roman Ledenev, Op. 13. There don't seem to be any recordings available, besides an old Melodiya LP.

The hair on that woman behind him is just unreal.
