    I just had to sit through 2 3/4 hrs of varied classical DVDs I never want to go through that experience again.
    I don’t want a signature any more

    She really had something special didn't she? What a tragedy she was taken from us so young.

    Tonight I will be watching Herbert von Karajan conduct the Berlin Philharmonic playing Tchaikovsky's Symphonies 4, 5 and 6. (Deutsche Grammophon).
    What a privilege!

    I've got a DVD with Mahler's 8th and 9th symphonies plus Das Lied von der Erde. A Deutsche Gramophon release, it features the Wiener Philharmoniker under the baton of Leonard Bernstein. Already watched Das Lied but still have to tackle the symphonies. I've been meaning to listen to them for almost a month now, but more important stuff just keeps coming up. Hopefully, I will have go at them next week.

    I'm a relatively late arrival to the world of DVDs as a performance-playback medium- but I touch base with the world of opera more and more, these days- so I suppose that stepping into the DVD world was pretty inevitable.
