And what happened to Octave?
And where is Octave...?      :(
Haven't seen him here for a long time!
As I understand it, a combination of other interests and the need to keep to his CD buying budget made it prudent to stay away from the temptations on offer here.

I do hope he'll reconsider his decision (frankly, I cannot understand why people abruptly delete their accounts because of a controversy on an internet board). I was mostly in disagreement with him on extra-musical topics but I valued his input on music and recordings.

When did this happen and on what thread if I may ask? A deplorable loss for the forum.

It happened last night (my time), in the James Levine thread yet the debate was over Jansons's comments. I was one of the (few) people who disagreed with him, but I wouldn't have imagined, let alone wish, he'd delete his account.

Nay, a Coloradan.  He's fairly active on Facebook; which is not to say that we do not miss him here  0:)

The #metoo (aka James Levine) thread. And yes, no grounds for leaving, really.
