Schumann
String Quartet in A, Op. 41 № 3

Stravinsky
Three Pieces for String Quartet

The Schumann is probably a first listen

It's a great while since I last heard the Stravinsky

Is entropy a subset of misanthropy?

Pretty much every weekend, in my case.  ;D

Apocalypse Now(AN) Final Cut
- Note 'AN' = Apocalypse Now
I saw the original film so long ago and it's not much more than a few select memories now, so alongside that and personal changes since then, this was more or less like seeing it for the first time.

It's a leviathan at three hours long, but without a longueur in sight, and with every moment feeling an integral brick in its construction, it's a breathtaking achievement. The many iconic moments I did remember are still as fresh/haunting as ever, Martin Sheen and Marlon Brando exuding all sorts of inexpressible horrors of the human mind, Coppola's visionary courage, but just about everything in this updated version, including the music, held me spellbound. A powerful, marvellous thing.

Well, own the BD w/ AN and AN Redux and now have a 4K HDTV, so have been debating on whether to buy the physical package (6 discs!) at the bargain price of $15 or buy the Final Cut Amazon streamer at $13 - the box with a half dozen discs is just 2/3 inch so not a big storage issue - now I don't watch this film often but need to make a decision.  Dave :)  P.S. review from my pic insertion above from HERE.
