Before you get to much farther along, could you review your attribution of the Mozart Violin Concerto performance? At its close, you seemed to imply that this was a recording of Ms. Fischer, though I thought you mentioned a different performer in your introduction. A play list, even if not precise in its times might be useful. Thanks.

Your interview with Julia Fischer was lovely and would have been even more enjoyable if we didn't have to listen to your chronic grammatical errors. They were especially obvious tonight when contrasted with Ms. Fischer’s colloquial, yet grammatically correct, English.

One cannot call or blog with “Julia and I.” We presume that you’re musical. Doesn’t it hurt your ears? Would you say “call I”? What happened to the word me?

(I can’t believe that I’m the first listener to file this complaint. Clean up your act and WNYC listeners will look forward to listening to you for many more years.)

Just heard Terrance inviting his audience to talk to guest "Julia [Fischer] and I." Was I, that is, I, not Terrance, the only one who winced? Do Terrance's listeners think that the pronoun object of a preposition is in the nominative case? Am I the only curmudgeon to point out that Terrance should have invited his listeners to talk to "Julia [Fischer] and me"? "To me." "To Julia." "And to me." "To Julia and me," Terrance. "To me." That is, to you, Terrance. Not to me. I'm under the covers weeping.

I am loving the interview with Julia Fischer. So lively and fun. It sounds like you two are having a good time and I'm smiling listening to it.

I loved the fact that Yulia plays Bach every day.
