You cannot convince us you are over 50 unless it was your grandfather, not your great grandfather.

You're calling me a liar.

e: "us" - is that a forum of real people or the priggish voices in your head?

Okay, how about despite that fact I'm not obliged to prove anything to anyone, I find a willing volunteer to look at copies of birth/marriage certifcates? Anyone want drawn into this?

You overestimate my power of attraction," he told her. "No, I don't," she replied sharply, "and neither do you".

No you weren't Ken. I called you out. You were at it and have been found out - and even lack the balls to admit it. And speaking of balls...
How can it be that you have a grandfather so brave that he not only volunteered but twice escaped, yet you're known on the forum for running away when a thread takes a turn you don't like? What happened there? How can that even happen?

e: you liar. 'Kenny boy' indeed.

Getting back on topic...

I changed my avatar to Enescu as I’ve become really overwhelmed by his music. It took me awhile to get into Enescu, but now I consider him one of the most brilliant composers of the 20th Century. I figured it’d be a nice change after having Debussy up for so long.

Cool! Nice signature line too.

Debussy won the fight thanks, in large part, to a huge tidal wave. ;)

I'm pretty sure you don't even remember the time when both Enescu and Debussy were out of the question.

In the end, I have to have more grit and edge in my music, which is why Shostakovich is my favorite composer.

 ;D ;D ;D

This is true, but tastes change and become more refined. :)

August Macke - Our Garden with Blooming Borders (1912)

That's a very fine painting. Its current whereabouts are at the Musée de l'Orangerie in Paris, as part of the Franz Marc / August Macke. L'aventure du Cavalier bleu exhibition.

I think I’ll stick with Walton for awhile. For me, one of the quintessential British composers. I actually prefer his music to Britten’s now. Him and RVW are neck-and-neck for me right now, but I have feeling Walton will win since I like his edgier approach, but the moments of beauty in Walton seem much more poignant than RVW’s.
