Affecting travellers every year, this bizarre phenomenon sees visitors to Florence suffer psychological breakdowns after being overwhelmed by the city's abundance of great art.

There must be good new stuff

You'd think so but but my senses are deadened, so I don't know.

I was vacillating between posting this in the Workshop and fixit stuff or the What are you listening to? forums. In the end I decided to post it here.

Nadia Boulanger was an important teacher of composition. She taught many of our favourires: Aaron Copland, Philip Glass, Burt Bacharach, Daniel Barenboim, Quincy Jones, Dinu Lipatti, Virgil Thomson, and many others. She refused to accept Gershwin as a student, because she thought it would ruin his style.

i love this piece.


ill never understand it, because it loops its own themes and repeats its motifs in ways that are beyond my skills to keep track of.

this old fart is a master, but he conducts it too slow. its supposed to have more tension. the mood of the composition is supposed to sound like its always trying to get ahead of itself, not to rest on well-timed and sedately phased intervals.

IMHO
