By the way he lifts his tail, arches his back and gazes lovingly.
I don't see Alfred's tail but his back is slighty arched indeed, and no doubt his gaze is loving behind his thick lenses.

That's the reason you seldom see Brendel grinning broadly while staring directly into the camera: his similarity to the Cheshire Cat is all too frighteningly obvious.

Actually, I was going to ask you, since you seem to know him better than any of us. He canceled overnight Saturday, with no apparent precipitating factor... :-\

I blame myself, for insensitive remarks about Glazunov.   :-[

If that's the case, Schubert symphonies also suck.

As long as you asked, I plan to drive you off the board with a flippant remark to the effect that Bach's Schubler Chorales are tedious.

You'll have to do a lot better than the above.  Those Chorales are not dear to me, although I don't hate them like you do.

If one can't stand negative comments on Glazunov, one has thin skin indeed. OTOH if one loves a composer, what does it matter what others think? Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

I'll shoot him an e-mail. I can't imagine him being upset over Glazunov. Now, if it was de Falla it'd be different   :P

I can't see Drasko getting upset at all.

Off your back like water, you're a tough one, you.  I could probably claim to suffer ennui during the Passacaglia and Fugue in c-minor and you wouldn't even flinch.

Right, no flinching, even if you suffer a stroke.
