    I've been listening to Brahms' 4th symphony a lot lately. That and lots of Marvin Gaye, Jefferson Airplane, Frankie Valli, and Pink Floyd.

    I also recently discovered that I actually enjoy opera.

    I just finished watching my all new Don Giovanni DVD. How brilliant was the production! It's the 2000 one. MET under Levine with Terfel, Fleming, Furlanetto et al... The best Don Juan DVD around imo.

    Speaking of operas...I had the pleasure of watching Carmen performed by the metropolitan opera + symphony, conducted by james levine. Such a magnificent opera, the music is absolutely gorgeous!

    This morning on the way to work I listened to Mozart's (I think) third Prussian Quartet in F major, KV 590. I also couldn't resist listening to the minuet movement from the second Prussian Quartet, KV 589 -- such a thoroughly "un-minuet-ish" minuet!

    Quite possibly my favourite symphony: Beethoven's 6th.
    Although a bit fast for my taste. Von Dohnanyi and the Cleveland Orchestra.

    If that's true, shouldn't you be giving yourself a new handle for the forum??

    I probably should, but opus-sixty-eight doesn't sound as cool as opus-sixty-seven.

    Today, it's Gotterdammerung. Not Wagner's strongest story, but I think he does more with the music here than anywhere else. I've also been fortunate enough to take a page from the book of 4/4 and follow along with a study score. Awesome

    Can I ask whose recording if not live? I'm going through an English music phase at the moment and was listening to a CD of Charles Mackerras/LPO. Sadly it was too late to have the last variation at a volume I'd like. I needed to escape headphones for a while.

    Now listening to Finzi's Introit (Boult).
