Benedetti makes her critics face the music
Ah, it works on so many levels! Literally, idiomatically, and...well, two, actually.
This seems blatantly false, but it makes a nice enough lead-in, I suppose. Perhaps I'm wrong; do they have a Manners and Composure section in most UK papers? (It can't be worse than the Life section in the Austin American-Statesman.)
But now, after years of biting her tongue, Nicola Benedetti...
...has finally hit back at the critics who have caused her heartache.
It is generally not recommended that you date your critics.
The acclaimed violinist has aimed her bow at over-zealous reviewers who make sweeping assertions about her...
Violinist...bow...oh, I get it! She's also a part-time (and, presumably, renowned) ship's captain!
Puns are outstanding.
...and urged them to "chill out".
Since the idiom is set off with quotes, I am able to identify it as such! Without such punctuational assistance, I'd be left with the assumption that she'd like her critics (and erstwhile suitors?) to remain outdoors in what (I assume) is nasty, bitter, Scottish weather. Thanks, quotation marks!
Benedetti admitted that she had been left hurt by some particularly vituperative criticism. "There were some articles that I got really upset about."
There are some parts of speech about which I get upset when ending sentences, but only mildly.
But wait! There's content:
The violin virtuoso also gave her verdict on modern music.
Ah, I am curious what a 21-year old violin virtuoso thinks about modernism and other current trends. What say you, wunderkind?
"There are some artists that are really, really special, but I don't like most commercial rap and R&B… I'd rather not listen to that."
Hmm. She doesn't like Rochberg and Berio? Who knew?
