Alan Rusbridger on building a more inclusive University of Oxford
timeshighereducation.com — Today we're announcing a new pilot project at Lady Margaret Hall: a foundation year for students from under-represented backgrounds who might otherwise not find their way into the University of Oxford.

theguardian.com — I am an album. I am on vinyl and I am a CD. I am a tour. If you don't believe me you can search for me on Spotify or seek me out in Frankfurt. It seems not to be a joke, though for some time I assumed it was.

Music, Sense and Nonsense by Alfred Brendel review - a great pianist’s thoughts on his art
theguardian.com — In December 2008, Alfred Brendel played his last public concert at the Musikverein in Vienna.

Schubertiade 2015 review - world-class musicians in peak condition
theguardian.com — Many festivals take years - even decades - to settle into a winning formula.

The Great British holiday hunt
theguardian.com — Along the grey windswept seafront at Lowestoft yesterday walked a nervous figure in a green anorak. From time to time he doubled back on his tracks or, glancing behind him, sat down to read a newspaper. Who was this uneasy man and what was he doing on such a rain-drenched day?

Longborough festival: how the Cotswolds became a mecca for Wagnerians
theguardian.com — The story of how a Cotswold couple came to stage the Ring cycle in a barn can be written as a saga of personal obsession.

‘Farewell, readers’: Alan Rusbridger on leaving the Guardian after two decades at the helm
theguardian.com — This, if you're reading the physical paper - which, of course, you are not - is my last edition as editor.
