Boƫllmann Symphony in F

He's known for a bit of organ music but this, after a slow start, is very nice indeed.

MGO is hopeless

Promised me two free movies for joining but billed me anyway. Lousy customer service too.

Austin Powers

It reminds me of Austin Powers.
“I want to do a tableau vivant.”
“An evil tableau vivant?”

World's worst music critic identified!

Lovers of early music will not be surprised.
Listen for yourself.
The Haydn symphonies set is superlative in all respects. It's not complete: 1-75 with a few extras. For anyone who needs the full cycle Fischer is availbale from Nimbus in MP3 format for about $25
Nimbus MP3 sets are also available of the Bowyer Bach organ music and the Lester Scarlatti set -- both are ridiculously cheap and splendid.
