Maybe you should be more than a by-stander and jump right in...

I also need to get my act together and get my vote in!  :-[    I have been swamped with things lately ranging from work, kids and taking care of my wife (that just had major surgery). Still, I have become fascinated with Bruckner through this long-term listening exercise. I HAVE to finish the finals after having been through the previous rounds. It is a true Bruckner marathon.   :P
Gotta....reach.....the... finish....line....  arrrrggggghhhhh......

Yes, she is doing much better. :) She (we) just had a rough 18 months, but it is reaching a positive resolution. She went through hip replacement surgery earlier this month and is scheduled for another one in January (and she is only 44). It has been quite a journey.
Thanks for asking!   0:)

That is young for that. I have had a couple friends in their early 50s had it done, and it turned out well for both.

I, too, hope the surgery and recovery go well. Mom's cousin (who happens to be a surgeon :D) had a knee replacement a couple of years ago, he managed to wear it off cycling with a faulty technique, and he was around 40 at the time. No trouble with the surgery.

Oh my! Some things are more important than listening to some music. I hope she has an ideal recovery.
Be kind to your fellow posters!!

Yes, I guess I had to choose my spouse over Bruckner this month!  ;)    She is doing really well, but it was pretty awful during the first week earlier this month. Now she asks me to put on Mozart, Telemann or Baroque music which has to be a good sign of recovery!

Difficult choice, but I see that next month will be different!  $:)   And the headline for you will be:

No, thanks. Having dodged two chances to embarass myself by dissing Jochum I think I should play it safe.  8)

Well thank you all for being patient. I would like to still let Ray have a crack at the final round when he returns. One more score could shake the order up a bit.

Interesting fact for the final round: There is an almost 50 year span between the oldest recording to the newest recorudng that made it to the final.

I know this. Still waiting for Ray, hopefully by this weekend he will be back. Otherwise I will possibly reveal the winner of the Golden Bruckner Boot. Or if anyone else has a better trophy idea.
