Thanks for viewing the Bach. I am familiar with Maisky, but didn't realize he had recorded the Bach suites. I am impressed. Much better than Yo-Yo Ma. Anyway, this piece was rattling around in my mind on Xmas eve. If I were a cellist, I think I could spend my entire life mastering these pieces and be infinitely happy doing so. But that's just me :-)
Hey - you have my household in stitches with that comment! Even my mother agrees with you! I've just written an article for a major metropolitan newspaper which probably meets all the criteria in your quiz too. No guarantee it will be published yet, but fingers crossed. Never have tolerated fools gladly.
My patience has run thin after her last remarks. I understand her problems with certain right wingers, but she likes to use stereotypes against those she disagrees with as much as she hates having those same people use stereotypes.
And apparently she knows me better then I do...from just a few posts on a forum ;)
