    Several of my recent Amazon orders (including the new CD shelf) have arrived these last couple of days. Today it was Karajan's classic 1963 set of the Beethoven symphonies, in the latest remastering.

    Mmmm . . . Beethoven on Blu-ray!

    Any photos of the shelf? Maybe I need something like that.

    For some reason, this doesn't get cued up very often:


    Name:  BrandenburgConcertos.jpg
Views: 50
Size:  14.9 KB


    I remember well the only time I've seen the Brandenburg Concertos performed live. I was still living with my parents in Rochester, NY (around 1974, a year or so before moving to DC) and I spotted a notice in the newspaper that the Concertos were to be performed by Eastman School of Music students in a theater on the University of Rochester campus.

    I decided to go - my folks weren't interested - (so started my practice of attending live performances by myself) but thought that classical music wouldn't be much of a draw, so wasn't in much of a hurry to get to the theater. That proved to be an incorrect assessment - the small theater was packed, but I was lucky to get a good center standing room spot where I was able to lean on a low wall. Thus, the lesson learned about making judgements about peoples' artistic tastes in a smaller community - when that community is very highly educated.

    The Concertos were presented out of sequence - rather than starting with Concerto #1 and working their way through the set, they started with the Concerto requiring the fewest instruments and proceeded in order of next largest number of instruments, adding and subtracting as they went along. It was the first classical concert I saw in the U.S., and I was dazzled.
