Sometimes music is best heard at volume. A case in point? The second movement of Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 8. I recommend the Fitzwilliam String Quartet recording. (The Emerson Quartet’s recording is available on iTunes, but the Fitzwilliams’ isn’t.)

(Apologies to our next door neighbours. I’m enjoying my last bout of loud music at home before we travel and don’t have access to a decent sound system.)

That is all.


I’m Greg Restall, and this is my personal website. I am the Shelby Cullom Davis Professor of Philosophy at the University of St Andrews, and the Director of the Arché Philosophical Research Centre for Logic, Language, Metaphysics and Epistemology I like thinking about – and helping other people think about – logic and philosophy and the many different ways they can inform each other.
