The site went down for a while. Fortunately all is good now.

I've had increasing problems over the last few days. If I try to post a message I get a 'this page isn't working at the moment' message and then, if I try again, it usually works fine. This evening I couldn't access the site at all but seems ok now.

This morning about 100 old messages came in, all in one go, blimey....still no connection to the live situation, so I guess I' ll wait for the next 100, one day there must be a connection between the emails and the posted messages....I hope!
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Again today a hundred old mails from GMG, the last was from Karl, with Myaskovsky's sinfonietta and Divertissement, and that was pretty far back if I remember well. Still no connection to what was posted today.
I hope It will, before I leave this world for good. :)

This was the last post

he text of the reply is shown below:
First-Listen Friday meets Myaskovsky Madness!

Myaskovsky
Sinfonietta in b minor, Op. 32 № 2
Divertissement, Op. 80
Svetlanov & al.

After the tremendous impact of this album's opener, the tone-poem Silence, I found the Sinfonietta something of a disappointingly dutiful listen. It dates from the same year (1929) in which Prokofiev made the final revision to his own Sinfonietta (first composed in 1909 (the year before Myaskovsky completed Silence)

The three movements of Myaskovsky's Sinfonietta are:
1. Allegro, piccante e serioso
2. Andante
3. Presto

The five movements of the Prokofiev are:

1. Allegro giocoso
2. Andante
3. Intermezzo: Vivace
4. Scherzo: Allegro risoluto
5. Allegro giocoso

The difference in character can be summed up in the contrasting descriptors for the respective first movements: serioso and giocoso.

Without wishing to flog the Myaskovsky piece for not being Prokofiev's ... the central fact for me is that the tone of Myaskovsky's work is peculiarly lugubrious for a piece designated a Sinfonietta.  In my first hearing, I was not conscious of the third movement Presto casting off the gloom much.  I shall go back to the piece, in hopes that the fog may clear (we might say)
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Is anyone else here finding the site to currently be very slow?  Finding it taking a very long time to go to the next page of a thread plus long time to post something too.  Perhaps site maintenance going on?  Or maybe just internet use in my area?

Wonder how much of this is due to so many people using their computers more due to either working or studying from home?

People get hundreds of emails from this site? How does that happen? I get the occasional notice when someone sends me a PM. Does this cascade of emails come if you hit the "notify" button I see in various pages on this site? I have to be careful never to click it.
