Bub..what Beethoven are you getting off on? Symphonies? Piano Concertos? Brilliant stuff. When I finally faced up to going back to school, the first class I signed up for was Music Appreciation. I knew there was “Classical” stuff that I liked and stuff I couldn’t stand. A little education helped me learn a lot about the differences.
Beethoven over Brahms, Bach over both. Eddie Perez for next mgr.
Youtube is the only place in the world where you can dial up a 33 minute Beethoven symphony and the observers are threatening to kill each others’ mothers because one guy thinks the conductor’s hair flicks around too much and the other doesn’t. Strange times.
Bach’s “Chaconne” is one of his finest moments. Originally written for harpsichord, right Leah? EP has been learning lots in the off season as a manager..I just hope that he has gotten the experience he needs to be considered a candidate to replace BC.
#7 is a good one. #3 was historical and #6 is great for a doobie and a beer. I didn’t say that.
Actually, Leah, there is banjo in Sandra Mac. It’s the twangy thingy all through “Thy Mercy…” 8)
Tcc, I never had a bit of luck with any doobie. Uncomfortable experience(s). Maybe Beethoven’s 6th is what I was missing. Be right back. (j/k)
Curt, maybe the heaviness is what draws me into Beethoven. Most of the classical stuff which I can’t relate to I end up thinking of as too light and airy (Mozart especially). I’m always just ready for the elevator to stop. I’m sure it’s a deficiency I could overcome if I listened enough to develop my palate.
Why no Eddie? Hater.
I haven’t heard anything on Wagner except that he’s sick. Not a big deal, I wouldn’t think. Let’s save as much of his batteries as we can. He’s ahead of everybody anyways from what I gather.
Hanging out w/head of MLB here in Tokyo and he says Sox didnt resign Saito for age and Wagner cuz he wanted closer spot. Also says two viewd on Kawakami- one is that he settles in after ajustment year- so hes as good or better. But second is that he doestnt have much pitch variety and ML hitters are figuring him out.
Well phooey. Thought I was bringing something new to the table. I also thought Age to Age was the only song that would show on the link. Which, if I’m not mistaken, has no twangy thing. “Thy Mercy…” is a fave!
