Looks fetchingly like an altar boy.

The well-tailored composer.

Indeed. That’s one thing about Ravel: he was always impeccably dressed.

Sigh.

I'm less convinced that fb actually does or should have all the rights Reason assumes btw.

Last week I went (inspite of the cold...) to Cologne and Bonn.
Saw first Cologne's Dom again - one of the most impressive buildings in the world,imho - Schumann's "Rheinische" echoing in my head.
Then revisited the Ludwig Museum and went, later on, to the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn for "GURLITT: STATUS REPORT - Nazi Art Theft and its Consequences.
Excellent exhibition, meticulously prepared and very instructive.

"News that the Bavarian Public Prosecutor’s office had seized the art collection of Cornelius Gurlitt (1932–2014), caused an international sensation when it was made public in November 2013. The 1500 works that the reclusive son of the art dealer Hildebrand Gurlitt (1895–1956) had inherited from his father raised suspicions: had they been looted by the Nazis before and during the Second World War?

To investigate these suspicions, the German government provided the funding necessary to conduct further research, while Cornelius Gurlitt agreed to restitute any work identified as looted. Thus far, four works have been returned to the heirs of their lawful owners. Gurlitt, who died in May 2014, bequeathed his collection to the Kunstmuseum Bern."

Two favorites:



Max Beckmann, selfportrait (1919)

and from the Ludwig Museum: Max Ernst - Die Jungfrau züchtigt das Jesuskind vor drei Zeugen: André Breton, Paul Eluard und dem Maler), 1926

The Monk by the Sea, by my favorite painter, Caspar David Friedrich.
"Javert, though frightful, had nothing ignoble about him. Probity, sincerity, candor, conviction, the sense of duty, are things which may become hideous when wrongly directed; but which, even when hideous, remain grand."

That’s one thing about Ravel: he was always impeccably dressed.

When it comes to elegant dressing, it's hard to beat Reynaldo Hahn.

Music, even in situations of the greatest horror, should never be painful to the ear but should flatter and charm it, and thereby always remain music.. - Mozart

Interesting: the Gurlitt case has been dragging out & I didn´t know about that exhibition.
As a curiosity, Hildebrand Gurlitt was related to Manfred Gurlitt (1890-1972), mostly known today for the opera "Die Soldaten" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manfred_Gurlitt

Manfred Gurlitt’s take on Wozzeck is in my cart at Amazon.ca. I’ll pull the trigger in the next couple of weeks.
