It’s okay,

Yay!

but I’m still not wholly convinced and haven’t been convinced with any other performance other than Thomas Schippers’ classic account. The Schippers remains my reference.

Very thoughtful of you to give a point of reference. Try Slatkin, Thomas, Bernstein and Bernstein LAPO...not that it's not OK to have the schippers as a reference though. Thanks

Oh, I know Bernstein (both accounts), Alsop, and several others, but, as I said, Schippers is my favorite and, for me, the most impassioned reading of this work I know.

What about Agnus Dei? Have you found your Agnus Dei?

No, but I’m not too worried about it since it’s just a rearrangement of Adagio for Strings. To be honest, while I do love the Adagio, it’s not one of my favorite Barber works and, for me, the popularity of the work does little justice to the other music he wrote.

Perhaps the committee heard music that people enjoy?

Das versteht sich!  0:)

I can recommend this one:



COWBOY (sitting down to a poker game for the first time): "Is this a game of chance?!"

- W. C. FIELDS  (as Cuthbert Twillie): "Uhh, not the way I play it, no." in  My Little Chickadee.
