    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.

    What a repertoire. It must've been a great event. I was up at that time (10 am CET) but didn't have access to my PC.

    How did you like Olejniczak's playing, David?

    Look - it was really quite nice hearing them all play that ancient piano and the orchestra's complete lack of vibrato (well almost complete) was amusing and, kind of nice. I loved it, it was wonderful to hear it. Loved it, Mat.

    That's what I thought.

    You didn't happen to record it, did you? Is there any chance to still hear it somewhere?

    Sadly not, ABC Classic FM does not keep most of their broadcasts up to relisten to for copyright reasons. They are generally only licensed to broadcast an overseas concert once, sadly.

    Hey Mat - it would appear that there are more nice free scores for chopin on IMSLP (http://www.imslp.org/wiki/Main_Page)
