  2. documentarist
    • 2009 March 3, Joe Moran, “The golden Allegro age”, The Guardian:
      Now everyone is at it: we have had a Radio 4 series about the Caravan Club, the actor Richard Wilson exploring Britain's best drives in a Morris Traveller, and documentarist Michael Smith going in search of "sunsets over spaghetti junction".
  3. logjammed
    • 2009 March 3, David Hencke, “Treasury rescues big building projects with £2bn injection”, The Guardian:
      Jeremy Barker, a director with accountants KPMG, said: "Any source of new money is clearly going to help free up logjammed transactions but the idea of a government bank acting like a private funder is potentially at odds with the philosophy underlying PFI."
  4. monthling

  7. rustbowl
    • 2009 March 3, Patrick Wintour, “On the agenda for the meeting between Gordon Brown and Barack Obama”, The Guardian:
      However, he is facing opposition from Democrats in post-industrial "rustbowl" states and will come under pressure from developing countries not only to commit the US to an 80% cut in emissions by 2050, but also to pay for their investment in green technology.
  8. siloviki
  9. sprechgesang
    • 2009 March 3, Andrew Clements, “Gurrelieder”, The Guardian:
      Monica Groop was a compelling, anguished Wood Dove; Ralf Lukas and Andreas Conrad were high-class casting for the Peasant and Klaus the Jester respectively; while the final hallucinatory sprechgesang section was delivered with spellbinding dramatic power by Barbara Sukowa.
  10. theatricalism
    • 2009 March 3, George Hall, “BBCSO/Bringuier”, The Guardian:
      But Bringuier's spacious reading stressed its near-expressionist aspects as much as its blatant theatricalism, hitting its strengths dead-on.
  11. unfalteringly
    • 2009 March 3, Andrew Clements, “Gurrelieder”, The Guardian:
      This was a performance that unfalteringly plotted the music's course from the lush Wagnerian textures of the opening to the wilder, quasi-expressionist climaxes of the final part - Salonen and the outstanding Philharmonia had it all perfectly judged.

  3. ostalgie
    • 2009 March 3, Joe Moran, “The golden Allegro age”, The Guardian:
      Perhaps we are experiencing a version of what Germans call ostalgie, that longing for the two-stroke Trabants and quaint traffic-light signs of the old East Germany that began as self-conscious kitsch but has become an expression of disappointment at free-market economics.
