Will there be any audio or video recordings for us poor rabbits who
can't cross oceans and continents to be there?
And who is doing the readings? These will also be interesting as there
are so few contemporary renderings of the poetry.
I say that if somebody bothers to be there with a digital voice
recorder might succeed in giving us at least an inkling. For the music
one would need more professional equipment, I guess.
