Up to Now
Of limited appeal
This article is from 2010.
Robert Shaw’s monologue takes us through events from the life of his grandfather, the composer Martin Shaw, in fin de siècle Europe. From conducting for Isadora Duncan to meeting with August Strindberg, events that should be illuminating fade into one long paragraph, unmarred by variation in tone, pace or a charismatic performance. Up to Now is of limited appeal.
