    I agree with Fretless what is the point of a work that some guy thinks LvB may have written. pure cuckoo land, how on earth can you know what LvB had in mind based on a couple of sketches.
    I forgot to say I listened to about 5 min of the clip (couldn't stand any more) and found it to be dull not at all what the great man would have been happy with

    Apropos "unfinished" - "God put me on this earth to do many things - Right now I'm so far behind that I'm afraid that I'll never die!"
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    It is inevitable that followers of someone great will want to finish his work. Look at how many James Bond books have been written sinece Ian Fleming died (maybe not a good comparison but a valid one). However non of them could compare with the original authors work. And the same with music. As CD said how can you be sure that this is what the original composer wanted? It can only be guess work and wishful thinking. Let it rest in peace.

    Bach is the master as far as I am concerned.
