No, it's not my own website! But it's quite good. (It wouldn't be good if were mine, that's for sure!)
http://www.geocities.com/Vienna/4098/

It has lots of sound samples, some research like a Medical Biography and analysis on some of his works. The fonts are so ugly!

Check it out.

Luis,

No, seriously, I didn't notice it. By the way, since we haven't celebrated the 1000 posts and I have ruined the 100 topics gala, how are we going to celebrate Bís birthday?

Until they develop effective digital champagne I don't know how we can do it together. The 16th is generally regarded as the likely date, so tomorrow pour a libation to the master by candlelight and then down some alcoholic substances in his honour, with appropriate accompanying music, of course.

I shall be out to dinner tomorrow night, so I think I'll use B's birthday as an excuse to subsitute wine for Champagne (not digital !) - won't have much say with the music though ! Cheers Ludwig !

I have an idea. Since we cannot give a present to B in his birthday, why donít we give each other gifts? We can do it in pairs. For example I could give you, Rod, Mahlerís 2nd symphony by Bernstein so you can finally understand what a good symphony is!! http://www.gyrix.com/~cgraye/ubb/smile.gif
No, seriously, we can give each other Bís CDs we particularly like. Maybe using CDRs. What do you think?

Doesnít anybody here like Mahlerís 2nd? http://www.gyrix.com/~cgraye/ubb/frown.gif To me it is absolutely glorious!

Yes - I think it's his best (though I like individual movements from the other symphonies), not as good as Beethoven's 2nd though!

The idea of 'doing things in pairs' is a commendable one, but in my case such activity would NEVER involve Mahler.

I used to have B's Missa Solemnis directed by Bernstein. It was the first and last recording I bought by this chap.

Beware talk of CDR's, I suspect DG and EMI have got spies in this place. I only record via stereo video, its the best medium for long pieces of music. I would send anyone whose interested a demo on stereo video of the period instrument Beethoven I always rabbit on about. Since most of the titles are no longer in the catalogue I think I would suffer less from lawyers.

Yes, I know...
But have you listened his 2nd, Rod? Really! Have you?

I have no CD video. (Damn!) Besides, Iím afraid I wouldnít have known what to give you, Rod.

WHAT!? I mean WHAAAAT???!!!

(Maybe I should be banned for saying this but...) to me (TO ME) Bís 2nd compared to Mahlerís 2nd is like a Haydn symphony next to Bís 9th. (NO! the Haydn symph. would be Bís 2nd, I'm sorry)

I reckon a little Mahler wouldn't hurt. I can only provide Beethoven and Rock music as gifts, as these are the only areas where I possess adequate knowledge http://www.gyrix.com/~cgraye/ubb/smile.gif

Where does Mahler's 2nd stand next to B's 9th then ?

50 posts for full membership? I thought it might involve a masonic handshake. Or a `bung` (that should puzzle our non-British friends)......
How many posts before I can be Moderator? I`ve always fancied that job......hmm......

That's not fair!!

No, way behind. B's 9th is unbeatable.
