    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Well I did listen to the concert last night, it was LONG (2 and a half hours) but I enjoyed every second. John Chen's playing of the Beethoven 5th piano concerto was finely crafted and gorgeous and the Tchaikowsky Symphony 4.5 (Manfred) was thrilling. No a big fan of Sculthorpe, though his opening work was nice.

    David, thanks for the ABC link do they have pod casts?? I missed the performance and thought it may be available as a down load.
    The Radio NZ have a page which gives a free down load each month and it stays available for 2 months it is in mp3 @ 192kbps well worth a fiddle around with if you have time

    Hey Colin, thanks - I'll book mark that.

    Our orchestras, when they are broadcast, only remain in place for the event for various reasons (copyright and so forth). Sadly, this Sydney Symphony concert was a one off. All good.
