The Cross-Eyed Pianist site has been selected for inclusion in the the UK Web Archive at the British Library.
Established in 2010 initially as a place where I could record thoughts about returning to the piano after a long absence, the repertoire I was working on and concerts I attended, the site has evolved over the past 9 years into a varied “magazine” of articles on piano playing and pianism, repertoire, performing, performance psychology, musicians’ health and well-being, teaching, concert and CD reviews, interviews with musicians, composers and conductors, guest posts, and more esoteric musings on being a musician in the 21st century, and classical music in general.
I am hugely grateful to everyone who reads, supports and contributes to The Cross-Eyed Pianist.

The UK Web Archive was established in 2004 to capture and archive websites from the UK domain and across the web, responding to the challenge of a digital black hole in the nation’s memory. It contains specially selected websites that represent different aspects of UK heritage on the web, as well as important global events.
This is awesome – kudos!
Excellent news – and thoroughly well deserved, Frances!
