    Listening again today to the Symphony No. 5, "Segments", by Antanas Rekašius, one of my favorite records for some while now,

    Rekasius LP.jpg

    I was reminded that I had posted on this same disc some time ago on this website. Running a search, I found the post and thought it might be shared again here. Apparently this composer does not get much mention on TalkClassical.com for the search for his name produced only the one post -- my own. Alas!

    http://www.talkclassical.com/showthr...l=1#post909843

    I might mention here that I first read about this disc in an issue of Fanfare Magazine, in a review of the recently released LP. The disc was released in the early 1980's, but I did not acquire one till sometime later from a second hand seller. Though when I had first read about the record and it intrigued me greatly, I put off purchasing the disc. By the time some years later that I decided I must hear this, and began searching for a copy, it was out of print. But some years later, when the opportunity to purchase a used copy arose, I snatched it up quickly. (I wish I had done so at the time I first read of the disc, but I was likely on some sort of budget and had already ordered my allotment for the month so did not get the Rekašius disc.) In any case, it has become a favorite record -- partly due to the search involved to get it, and largely because of the music. But that's the classical vinyl disc I listened to today.

    Something really weird (and nice) happened to me today.
    I woke up and played the Dvorak side of the record I'm posting today. I was ready to leave when the second movement was on. I usually wait till the movement is over, but today I had to leave because I wanted to be on time at work, so I switched the amp off, left home, went to the car and set the car's radio on. It's always playing Radio 4, that over here (The Netherlands) is the classical music station. It was playing the Dvorak quartet, exactly the second movement, the one I was listening when I left home. There was a moment I thought I was dreaming, but I wasn't. What are the chances that such thing can happen?
