    Thanks for the concurrence. As for your second sentence, perhaps we were. I grew up as an only twin!

    The Boulez Gotterdammerung DVD is one of my all-time favorite films, including all non-opera cinematic films. Well deserving of every minute of its 45-minute standing ovation.

    Boulez and Levine are closing in on each other.

    It's fun to shop and buy CDs online and have music coming in the mail all the time.
