Streaming Nielsen Violin Sonata No.1, op.9

It certainly starts with a bang.
I wonder if people who talk this way realize the implications of what they're saying.

If the founders were just "slave owners and arrogant, greedy businessmen from the past," then we should throw out everything they did. The problem is, what they did included the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Federalist Papers.

Again, I think about the end of the Soviet Union. As soon as they started carting away the Lenin statues, and annulled Article 5 about the "leading role" of the Communist Party, it was clear the state was finished. With its founders and ideology gone, it could stagger on for another year or two, but its collapse was inevitable. I wonder if something similar is going to happen here.

White nationalists have been advocating for the partition of the USA for decades. It would be ironic if they got their wish due to the actions of crazed leftists.

Your flag and statues are coming down. You need to learn to live with it.
Symphony No. 16 in B flat major (1761-6)
The Academy of Ancient Music

Haydn, Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach, Johann Christian Bach, Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, Gluck, Boccherini, Cimarosa, Dittersdorf, Vanhal, Clementi, Soler,  Carl Stamitz --- all active and busy; Mozart, Pleyel, Krommer rising. I'd say classical music in 1775 was in excellent condition. What astonishes me the most is that the greatest self-professed GMG classical era fan ---I'm looking at you, Gurn! --- did not bother to say it loud and proud.  ;D

OK, you did not follow at all, or did not want to.

I just don't understand why folks post like this. Just to troll?

Tapiola, Op. 112
Inspired by Tapio, the ancient Finnish god of the forest, this symphonic poem is a broadly pictorial and atmospheric composition.
It’s as tautly conceived as any of his symphonies and as evocative in its tonepainting as anything in his entire oeuvre.
