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

newstatesman.com — The first time I met someone using Tinder, the free dating app that requires users to swipe left for "no" and right for "yes" before enabling new "matches" to chat, it was an unqualified success. I should probably qualify that.

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. We're intending to start it this autumn in the expectation of finding 12 exceptionally bright candidates who are interested in coming to Oxford, regardless of any obstacles they may have encountered so far in their lives.

'An act of genius' - Alan Rusbridger the editor on Alan Rusbridger the album

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. At the age of 78, he had decided he would retire gracefully from the platform in the manner and at the time of his choosing.

Schubertiade 2015 review - world-class musicians in peak condition

theguardian.com — Many festivals take years - even decades - to settle into a winning formula.

Do not come to the Austrian hamlet of Schwarzenberg in search of novelty or experimentation: you won't find it.

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.
