Terrific! My 2nd favorite LVB symphony (tied with Eroica).

And Aaron Brock! Wonderful :)

ah... my lovely aaron....

A young woman sent me a PM through b.com just yesterday saying she had been a student of Aaron's. I was teary reading it because she said such kind things about Aaron but I was delighted that she found me through b.com! I can't say enough good things about Beethoven.com and to all the people who are contributors to these boards.

Ah... he's on now. This piece makes me weep...

Mary,

That is a wonderful thing about teaching - He will live on through the minds of the students he touched. The finest marble could build no greater memorial.

Time for my little G.G. rant for the day.

Gershwin's "Strike Up The Band" played today twice less than 6 hours apart between 7:53 AM and 1:27PM :rolleyes:

Up next at the time of this post, although, I think, it may be just one movement.

Ahh yes! Quartetto Italiano.

Ironically String Quartet # 14 by LVB Opus 131 does not have the same emotional resonation with me compared to the other late string quartets and some of the earlier/middle ones also.

Yet, SQ # 14 is widely regarded by critics and music fans as his best.

Requested the 1st movement from LVB's # 4 Symphony. A terrific movement, and highly underrated.

Ya know, I love opera live, and occasionally on TV, but I gotta say there is only one good thing about the Revenge Aria on radio/internet. Thank heaven it's short.

There must be some way to mess up the system so that you can listen to BR secretly. :twisted:

Wow, this was my first full listen to the entire "Pictures at An Exhibition" by Modest Mussorgsky, on Beethoven.com

Absolutely loved it! Wonderful. :D

Thanks to David in Nashville, TN for requesting Respighi's Church Windows. This is the first time I've heard that particular piece. I know we mentioned it back in a 30 Questions some time ago, but I had not heard it before.

It is a beautiful work!
