    The local classical radio station played some Faure for his birthday this morning. I caught them with the back announcement, so I didn't hear it. It is also Massenet's birthday.

    Happy birthday to Richard Wagner, May 22, 1813 - February 13, 1883.

    In his honor I will be listening to the complete Mendelssohn symphonies today.

    He's written a double concerto for flute and oboe. A lot of his other music has parts for flute as well.

    I would have listened to something if I remembered to check my list of birthdays. Haven't been doing that lately.
