de Murashkin.

Aye.  Has a curiously hybrid look.  Just the word geek in me.

Quote
But yes it still doesn't sound terribly Danish. Then again, the Danish football team includes Delaney and Braithwaite. People have complicated histories these days. They don't just trudge around the European countryside on foot anymore.

Not to suggest that de Marushkin does not deserve his place at the table . . . there is that historic Jutland-Anglia connection, so the names Delaney and Braithwaite don't surprise me as much.

Of course, when I brought in a guest soprano named Lakshminarayanan, one of my choir members asked where she was from.    “Michigan,” I answered.

Bartók: 6 String Quartets - Hungarian String Quartet.



Whenever I play/post this it's with mentioning how the Hungarian String Quartet recording proved something of a milestone. Before, I couldn't listen to these works, but then after buying this a door opened which ultimately led to more Bartok seeming accessible. And although the Takács take on these string quartets is also a pleasure, this remains a firm favourite.

Nothing could be more appropriate while Denmark plays Australia than an accordion duet by a Danish/Australian composer.  ;D

Australia played superbly and should have won. Too bad they didn't.

Not to mention that Delaney could quite possibly have his origins in a certain De Lanney...  :D

I am getting heartily sick of noble Australian failures in football.

PS Delaney's grandfather was American.

Listening to the fill-up item (hate that term!) on this set,Sullivan's The Merchant of Venice-Suite. This is very attractive music,indeed. Full of nice tunes and colourful,vigorous orchestration. A nice surprise! I hadn't really listened to it before! :) :) :) Oh,and I like Ruddigore,too! (Surprise). This isn't the best recording,though!
