Ugly heckle disrupts the idyll of Austria's Schubertiade

theguardian.com — One of the points of the Schubertiade - the music festival held in a tiny Austrian village each August - is that little about its ethos changes from year to year.

Alan Rusbridger on paywalls, funding schemes and the future of the media
