After Sarge, 2010 at this concert, I have now met my second fellow GMG'er, Wanderer -- alas, not in connection to a concert but over beers at a dive. Capital fellow, indeed.

Granted, as far as dives are concerned, it's probably upscale.  ;D There are a good many, even in Vienna, that fit the bill better. But it's always good to undersell.

Amen! One of the nicest, most genial and amiable fellows I've ever met in my whole life.
The golden mean, the truth, is no longer recognized or valued. To win applause one must write stuff so simple that a coachman might sing it, or so incomprehensible that it pleases simply because no sensible man can comprehend it. - Mozart
