    Grab the Nielsen 3 & 5 for a few bucks. Bernstein's No. 5 is one of the best! And No.3 is a beautiful symphony.
    Short-term thinkers are rewarded with reelection, while those who dare to take seriously our responsibility to future generations commonly find themselves out of office.

    ^I'm new to Nielsen, the Bernstein disc with 2 and 4 is the only music of his in my whole collection. And frankly I can't say I'm much a fan of his yet. I'm hoping Lenny will be the one to convert me. I understand he is a composer who is highly regarded by fans of some of my other favorites (Sibelius, for example) but his music doesn't make much sense to me as of yet.
