    On the picture box
    The national broadcaster here is quite good showing concerts almost daily.

    1979 Leonard Bernstein Beethoven 9th symphony
    Wien
    Kurt Moll, Rene Kollo, Gwyneth Jones and some else, sorry, forgot.

    Super HD shows a very dramatic Bernstein with furious punches and beautiful facial expressions. Sweat dripping from his face with each movement it looked exciting and of course the orchestra and singers responded accordingly. Sadly, I could not have the volume as I would have liked; the wife's reading time and the newborn downstairs does not permit. I need my own music room. I also want a 8k tee vee.

    He must have had Synesthesia: "Synesthesia is a neurological condition in which information meant to stimulate one of your senses stimulates several of your senses." According to my daughter (who has Synestheia--son does too), she and her brother can watch a movie and then later replay it in their heads in vivid imagery from the movie. My daughter writes books and has the whole story laid out in her head and can move things around. She sees some things, like days of the week, as colors. It is a really freaky thing. If I tell them some creepy thing, like how the doctor had to poke a hole in my eyeball to remove the cataract lens and insert a plastic replacement lens, they say they can feel it. I would think this condition could drive one crazy, but they seem happy with it. I will say, they would be good ones to give the police a description of a suspect. Me, no good (...he was tall, long hair, dark jacket, i think he had grey pants, a little bit heavy, but I am not sure...)
