Roy Moore and the Decline of the Conservative Mind
It's worth the read but I don't know if it is this or something else. My mind is open to all explanations. There's a hateful, racist, nasty side to America that's always been there but there also seemed to be different limits. Maybe humans are just too dumb to survive in the long run? Maybe it's something simple like fast food media providing a megaphone to the worst aspects of human nature. It reads like some Philip K Dick story. The National Review has a kind of conservative explanation: too much nurturing. Too much management: the nanny state has led to the baby-POTUS. But why would CONSERVATIVES elect this guy in their primary (is the best question in the National Review story)?

Mozart: Horn Concerto No. “0” & Fragment K494a [Tuckwell]....





These are two incomplete works and Tuckwell is a competent interpreter of Mozart’s music.

Thanks.

If it helps, the ones I'm looking at (based on interesting performances of the c# minor mazurka Op. 41/1 I heard on streaming) are:
Rubinstein I or II
Fialkowska
Luisada
Ezaki
François
Chiu
Sherman

Also if Primakov or Olejniczak ever record the remaining ~30 not on their individual discs (which is unlikely) I'd be down for that too
Luisada has recorded them twice, later on RCA. The later set only includes the ones published while Chopin was alive I think, for whatever reason..
A good few of those is probably in full on Youtube for sampling purposes..

E: And I like Ashkenazy quite well. Ignaz Friedman might be worth a listen too.

Great Recordings and Reviews / Re: Recordings That You Are Considering

And thanks @Florestan, fixed the link above (hate it that the board brings you to one Level further up when you finish a post - no idea what's the rationale behind that).

What happens to me frequently is that I write something and suddenly the cursor jumps up on another line. Previewing the post is the best option to avoid typos and weird behavior.
