Here's a photo I just remembered of Henry Cowell I've always liked. 



I love it that he accommodates the cat!  LOL

Tabby cats are obviously the best cats for cheesing, which is what composers use to get their best ideas.

"When I initially came across Wagner's Ring it was like a revelation"

"Accusations of anti-semitism make Wagner's Ring a sensitive area today,"

"What you get out of Wagner's Ring depends on what you put into it."

"I first approached Wagner's Ring years ago with some trepidation knowing that many had found it incredibly hard. Fingering between the sheets of this fine volume has however allowed me to ease myself in with hardly any resistance, and I am forever indebted to John DiGaetani for his book b rimming with handy hints and tips.

Much of the superfluous has been cleaned, with each enema and friend and familial connection detailed clearly."


"This has turned a seemingly bottomless of intricacy into the best thing that I've experienced aurally - often leaving me literally gaping."

"Penetrating Wagner's Ring is a wonderful way to spend many a lazy afternoon, or even the odd fun-filled weekend!"

"Initially I had a hard time getting into Wagner's ring, no matter how much I pushed myself, I just couldn't slip into it. However, I found that slowly, after repeated attempts, Wagner's ring loosened up and permitted me the access I'd been seeking.

Now, whenever I get lonely on cold winter nights I just dip into Wagner's ring. I don't think I've reached the bottom of it yet, but I'm getting close"


Maybe I'm just a pervert... but some of these must be intentional...

Inside that uppermost beam of light is the earth.  From a Voyager 1 photo taken some 4 billion miles away.

Honegger and Frank Martin, but neither were Jewish AFAIK.

Thanks, that's a nice Wiki entry.  I hadn't seen Sagan's speech mentioning the "pale blue dot," and it's quite moving.
