John Mayer's 'Heavier Things' cd. It's OK, seems to me like all of his music sounds too similar, wife really likes him though.

Tonight it was "The Incredibles" The kids love it and so do Granny and I.

It even has a fun sound track, and that makes it all the more fun

JohnK,

If I might impose upon you again...I need (several if possible) examples of well recorded Timpani concertos to help me settle a spirited debate with a dear friend about whether or not percussion in the classical genre is "lazy, at best" (her words). I have talked about having experienced kettle Nirvana live to the point of exhaustion and not made a dent and was hoping that you had some suggestions which would force this Show Me State lass eat a helping heaping of crow.

/Jack

Yeah, Jack, but despite the mediocre sound quality(for the music; the coughs are hifi)I'm happy to be able to hear the world's biggest music festival. If you didn't listen to last saturday's program, it would be worthwhile to punch it up. An orchestra of Juilliard and Royal Academy students with Colin Davis did an okay Vaughn-Williams 6th and a surprisingly good Symphonie Fantastique. Possibly the young players inspired Sir Colin into a more energetic than usual interpretation.

As to timpani concertos, you have me pretty much stumped as to personal knowledge. Although in the thousand or so CDs I have there're of course passages featuring timps(e.g. Beethoven's 9th, Also Sprach Zarathustra, Symphonie Fantastique), there's not a timpani concerto to be heard. Checking a bit, there's this review of a likely suspect. Listened to some samples here which didn't have me rushing for my credit card, but there aren't many timp collections available.

Indeed, the coughs are appropriately phlegmy, the sneezes are realistically wet. The M80s are so accurate in their reproduction that I am convinced the gentleman five rows in front of me really does suffer from tuberculosis.

I was actually fortunate enough to see some of the Proms spectacle when I was in the UK in 1992...my tiny mind was boggled at the level of musicianship it was surrounded by. I hope to be fortunate enough to see (hear) it again one day. In the meantime, the NPR broadcasts make me quite happy.

I ran across the Druschetzky example during my initial search for ammunition. I, like you, was none to impressed. It doesn’t really have the ‘punch’ I was looking for and have heard live on more than one occasion.

I appreciate the effort on my behalf.

So, do you think the percussionists get their moment live every once in a while and never get recorded?

Also, would you be willing to share with me a good recipe for crow? It appears I shall be the one dining…:-)
