Count me as another fan of that gem. His other concertante works should be better known, though. The 2 other VCs are as good or even better as the most famous 1st one. In Memoriam Op. 65 is especially good, so is the Scottish Fantasy.

     What would a Repub Elijah Cummings do? Try to imagine something like that.

Disc two. Wonderful playing and good sound. These are live recordings, so there's the occasional finger slip, but overall, his playing is astonishingly accurate.

Only because she’s American. The whole importance of endorsement escapes me. As far as I can make out, it only works as a system because lots of Americans are willing to follow the instruction of a celebrity (whether a politician or otherwise) and this is the extent of their engagement with the political process.

I agree with this. Endorsements are propped up by the media and made out to be more than they actually are. Nevertheless, for what it's worth, AOC's endorsement is a "big" one.

Hi Karl - below a pleasant break in Wick 3 from gun shots to heads, i.e. knives and axes mainly -  :laugh:  Dave

I agree with you on WIck 3. It felt more like a stop gap to get you to Wick 4.

Welcome home, Dave!

I may possibly content myself simply with the first John Wick. Which I owe in part to our George.

The Britten Nocturnal is a favorite of mine.  The construction is unique in that it is a theme and variations, but in reverse: beginning with the variations and ending with a statement of the theme (of Dowland's).  And that Bream recording was my introduction to the work.

Yes, I agree that it is a very fine work and I like the concept of it. The Bream version is the only one that I have of it.
