Classical Music’s Most Secretive Gay Couple
Palestinian-Israeli pianist Saleem Abboud Ashkar and Danish violinist Nikolaj Znaider (who holds both Danish and Israeli passports).
This distinctly unappealing couple is shown here in Bergen, Norway, in June 2010.
For the life of me, I do not understand, in this day and age, why these two go to extremes, attempting to hide the nature of their relationship.
Everyone in Denmark, France and Israel (where the two spend their free time) has known about them for years.
