I started a post and then it vanished, so I may repeat myself with this one if the original turns up anywhere.<BR>The Philharmonia people recovered their instruments undamaged. Some guys found them, still in their cases, tossed into some bush. (i.e. a lot of trees.) Cue some delighted musicians!
<BR>Today is fine and warm at about 24 degrees. That's C not F. I can't understand why Americans cling so tenaciously to Fahrenheit. Not to mention tons, miles etc. I don't think anybody else in the world still uses them. what makes it even odder is that when you tossed the British out in 1776 you changed your currency. Why didn't you go the whole hog?<BR>There are some very good East European orchestras and conductors putting out cd's which I think fall off the back of a truck somewhere, because they turn up here at about a quarter of the price of the big-name North American and Western European orchestras. They don't have any ego-tripping either- they just play the music, and do it very well. The only downside is that they don't have pamphlets telling you about the work.
