Notes & Reviews:

The World over, in train and subway stations along with shopkeepers big and small, is turning to Classical Music to keep loiterers at bay, to "restore order". What does it say about our society today when fine music is being used as a weapon! For violinist Gil Shaham, this was a revelation: "As a violinist dedicated to my art, I've always looked to help the Greater Good. When I heard that Classical Music is used AS a tool to drive away loiterers I thought I'd found my niche".
