    Ouch! Personally, life is too short to spend on that.

    Really? It's less than 8 minutes....
    ...and I wonder is it related to this piece?

    (Should start at the 7:17 minute position)

    I've posted this before but nevertheless here it is again:


    (Sadly the website you can donate to to support orangutans doesn't seem to be working any more -- I was able to download the full length version when I made a contribution a couple of years or so ago.)

    I wondered who the other subscriber to that channel was.

    Listening to American country music while I get my tires replaced. It's amazing how much music we involuntarily hear in this age.

    . . . and how much of it is trite and unimaginative.

    Yes really. Let alone the full recorded works. Notice I said "personally", indicating it was not to my taste. I don't have a lot of time to spend really listening and trying to make sense of that and I'm not a numbers guy outside of keeping accounts, terrible at Sudoku, never would have made it as an engineer or mathematician. My music needs to have emotion.

    Oh I wasn't disputing your take on this -- I actually thought this was going to link to one of those really long (2-3 hours+) youtube clips and found it was quite short (and I also momentarily misread Webern for Weber). It reminded me a little too of the etudes I would exercise with many years ago. Almost tuneful but not quite tuneful enough to memorise.

    Wanted something quiet and restful this morning, so picked Prokofiev's 7th which is possibly the one I'm least familiar with.



    Normally his music reminds me of nobody but Prokofiev; he has a very unique style. And indeed the finale couldn't have been written by anybody else. But for some reason the earlier movements kept bringing Sibelius to mind (not a bad thing), and even a hint of Brahms in the third (not always a bad thing).

    Good to see the trumpets were brave enough to play it on Bb instruments: concert C# minor is not the easiest.
