    No, Gorecki's 4th symphony remains very much like Gorecki's talent -- unfinished and unfinishable.

    Indeed, my dear Berg; I am confident that if, upon reaching the unfinished section of the symphony, one were to put blank music sheets before a conductor and the orchestra, thereby allowing the musicians to play whatever they wished, and letting the conductor conduct anything he wished -- giving cues, indicating time, tempo, dynamics, etc. at random -- I am confident that the result would be even more remarkable than the talent of Herr Gorecki himself.

    Enough of the disrespect. I do not recall saying, at any point, that this thread was about liking or disliking Górecki's music. It was about paying tribute.

    Lars/Robin, you might just as well close this thread. Thank you.

    And I really hate it when some interesting troll-punching happens, White Knight my friend, I'm thoroughly with you about that (now banned moron). Mat - sorry this thread turned out so negative, thank you again for paying respect to a composer who will be missed greatly.

    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.
