Summary:
Despite the demands of the 24-hour news cycle and the breaking of two remarkable news stories (i.e., WikiLeaks and the "News of the World" hacking scandal), Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger set himself an almost impossible task: to learn, in the space of a year, Chopin's Ballade No.1, a piece with passages that demand outstanding feats of dexterity, control, memory and power.
