    Hope your appointment went well, Steve. Take care.

    Sorry for the OT.

    Mat, thank you so much for your concern. Turns out I have a damaged tendon which I suffered during my last 2 weeks at work before retiring after I tried--and failed--to stop a fleeing felon. However, he was subsequently caught and is doing time after the incident with me. I loved the Mahler, though; that was the highlight of my day!

    Today I bought Gustav Holst--The Planets and Richard Strauss--Don Juan, op.20. {both are included on this cd}. They are performed by the Vienna Philharmonic conducted by Herbert von Karajan. Originally recorded in 1961 and 1962 on Decca Music Group, they were re-mastered in 2007.

    Recently I acquired the Choral Concertos(Sheet Music) by Arkhangelsky. Really nice writing by a master whose music is woefully neglected in the Western Hemisphere(outside Russia).
    *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."

    If the Beethoven 5 & 7 is by Carlos Klieber it is one of my favorite recordings. I am sure you will be pleased. It strikes me as the way these two symphonies should sound.

    Hi, Rob; thanks for your observation. One of the interpretations of the Beethoven 7th I've bought is indeed conducted by Carlos Klieber. The other is by Leonard Bernstein. I can't wait to receive them and to start listening!

    Just ordered from Amazon The Complete String Quartets of Dmitri Shostakovich, performed by the Emerson String Quartet. Do any of my colleagues on the forum own this already? If you do, what do you think of their performances?

    Hey Monte - shame we didn't meet up! David.
    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.

    I just learned that my favourite record shop in Sydney has closed its doors "not happy Jan"

    Michael's Music Room was a small boutique shop that valued remember its regular customers by name and always offering enticing things to buy. Very sad.
