this is the thread for anything you want to bring to the attention of the posters on this board but doesn't have a thread and doesn't deserve a thread. you can post news, exclamations, irrelevant revelations etc. in fact, feel free to post whatever you want, it is not MY thread. :D

My shoulder is numb from a shot. I'm writing a cello concerto with a BEAUTIFUL, SUBLIME melody. And I had cookies a while ago, that tasted bad so I'm still hungry.

Les Preludes is playing on my OPERA station. (Go figure.)<BR>Much of classical music is based on the preference, knowledge, etc. of the individual.<BR>There's nothing on TV right now, as usual. <BR>Finally, I'm still hungry, and I'm going to go look in the kitchen to see if I can find something that's at least edible.<P>Things that taste bad, usually make me fuller than things that do taste good, but then again I can't eat a big proportion of something that tastes bad. I'm confusing myself, by describing myself. :)<p>[ 01-12-2003: Message edited by: eugene a. ]

I'm having a current obsession with Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings (op. 48 I believe?). Funny that the second movement gets encored and played a lot here on B. Radio, while I find the other 3 movements a little more enjoyable to listen to. Anyone else really like (or dislike for that matter) this piece?

It's a classical piece, written in Romantic sytle, that evolves into an early-modern sound. It's in Bb major. The cello solo is in treble, has a range of Bb above middle C to F below middle C, but only on the solo. i don't know about the rest. It's all in my mind. I form it in my mind. Write it down as a rough draft then and there. take it up later then write it down EXACTLY as it sounded in my head. Then just keep on add, subtracting over, and over, and over again until I'm satisfied. I don't know what else to tell you.<BR>I want ice cream but I'm broke. Should i spend my money that I was saving for a Rachmaninov or Lizst piece, on ice cream, then take the chance of not having enough money for the music or not?

Okay I'll just wait for it. :D <BR>And also the piece starts at Molto assai Moderato e Assai Expessivo, then chages (like ritard, Tempo 1, rall., A Temp, etc.) then finally gets slow enough to Poco Adagio, then in this Tempo it still slows down, then ends in a very quiet Largo. For the solo still though, only. :D

can anybody tell me which music processor is the best. I currently have "Mozart". but I'm looking to buy one of the established brands since they're better. does anyone know if "Finale" or "Sibelius" is preferable?

SANDERLING BARRED FROM FOOTBALL GAME <P> <BR>Security guards didn't like the sound of Stefan Sanderling's accent <BR> <P><BR>The incoming music director of the Florida Orchestra, German conductor Stefan Sanderling, was barred from the Outback Bowl in Tampa on New Year's Day, because he was considered a security risk.<P><BR>Apparently, Sanderling and his French wife had been invited to the game as guests of one of the orchestra's board of directors. While entering Raymond James Stadium, they were stopped by security guards, whose suspcions were aroused by Sanderling's wife's large purse and by their accents which indicated they were "foreigners."<P><BR>"The bad part, where it went horribly wrong, is that the [security supervisor] said because you're a foreigner I can't risk letting you in with the bag," Barbara Casey, director of communications for the local sports authority, told Florida's St. Petersburg Times. <P>Casey sent a letter of apology to Sanderling, who said he had only gone to the game as an initiation into American life. Welcome to the U.S., Stefan!<P> <BR>hmph... American chauvinism.
