Just discovered Profokiev, and his "Classical" symphony, last night. What a fantastic discovery!

Andy, I am also in the slow process of discovering Prokofiev. Romeo & Juliet (Maazel) was very impressive discovery. What a stunning ballet! Violin Concertos (Sitkovetsky) haven't grown on me yet. Piano Concertos (Kun Woo Paik) 1, 3 & 4 are good. That's what I have so far. I find Prokofiev's music warm and cold at the same time. It has some Elgarian warmth and some iron coldness of Shostakovich.
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

For what it's worth, Romeo and Juliet and the Seventh Symphony are Mrs. Rock's favorite works. Either or both might get you back into good grace with your girl, Andy, after all that Wagner  ;)

Sarge



 ;) :D


Empress Jasmine was let down right off the bat with Levine's "Ring..." cycle, mostly because the Rhine Maidens didn't look much like mermaids. But she adores what she calls the "mermaid prelude" to that piece.


She reacted as I did when first hearing Profokiev's "Classical": that is,with a general wonderment that we hadn't heard anything by this obviously superior composer before.

I adore the Prokofiev Opus 40.

As to that favorite name of yours, I cannot utter it any longer, nor deliberately cause it to be viewed on-screen . . . .

oh...... i see what you mean now

i didn't specify the details to Ubloobideega's misbehavior, though... (you see, he's really stupid)

he's a mass murderer because:
...
...
one of his favorite hobbies is going to the park to find ant piles to step on them; he's killed more ants than any person who's ever lived

he's a threat to the universe because:
...
...
he's trying to find 0KDU, which is a formula to create 0 Kelvin to destroy the universe, but we all know that'll never happen.

so will you use the sacred name of Ubloobideega once more, Pope Karl XXI?
