The Diner / Re: What are you drinking?

I don't remember seeing that one around me.  Perhaps it's not sold here. Definitely not the muddy one I threw out...

I did in fact run by Fresh Market and found they had Kona and Blue Mountain blends at the price I normally pay for other stuff in Publix. Of course blend means 90 percent is not Kona and Blue Mountain...

The brand I got can be seen blurrily in the very first picture, over the barrels.

Probably not sold in the US then? It's widely available in the UK, obviously Italian. It's arabica and robusta. The best commonly available one here is probably Illy, 100% arabica. Do you get that in the US? Oh yes, I see it in your photos!!!

Although I've got a Gaggia grinder, I'm afraid I've got lazy and it's languishing in the pantry. Perhaps I should treat myself and buy a tin of Illy beans. ☕️

Oh well, 'twas a good guess.  Here's an example of O'Hanlon's rhetoric:

Thanks, that was a good guess!  I will have to make certain to look behind me on dark nights; O'Hanlon could be trailing after me with his spiked cudgel.  He's witty, at least, when he's not obviously stretching...were it not for concern about his disease infecting other potential listeners, I'd feel sorry for him.  His dislike of the orig. instrument/performance practice movement generally and of Gardiner specifically (personally?) keep him from enjoying some wonderful music-making.  And interesting, alternative thoughts and perspectives on same. His loss.

There are quite a few familiar faces this trimester. I shall be making extra efforts to make friends this time around (not that I haven't been doing so)

Quick self-correction, Lindberg is 4-6 only.


Those are the important ones.  I can probably go years without any new 1-3.

Oh, it's utterly charming. I'm sure you know Ibert's Flute Concerto? If not, go grab Sharon Bezaly's album soon (paired with Rodrigo). The d'Indy and Saint-Saens are very very short works.

Performances here are good but the Franšaix Quadruple (wind) concerto is the only thing that's really hard to find elsewhere.

Actually I don't. I am not a, er, flutey kind of guy...hmm, let me see. I have that Galway set, it's in there, but obviously made no impression on me.   And I have the Rodrigo a couple of times over, so this CD goes on the list. Thank you.

I'm tempted to say fast recordings have an edge because the music is over with sooner.  I'll keep the Lindberg in mind, but I think two new Tchaikovsky cycles in one year is enough.  I will need a breather until next year at least.  (And Kim's cycle is, so far, the better of the two new ones I've heard this year.)
Cool. Will try to hear Kim some time soon. (Quick self-correction, Lindberg is 4-6 only.)
