[...there *is* a certain tendency for when you say 'Prog'(-ressive Rock) to a Classical head - they think you mean....yerknow - Prague...]

Can you play in "Prague" time signatures??..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Matt from Springfield:

28th's the charm!
  8:20pm oh:

don't bore us get to the chorus
Avatar 8:20pm Bethany Ryker:

I like the "opus-a-day" idea, but it limits to the first 31 pieces in a composer's catalog. Fun place to start and explore, however!
Avatar 8:21pm ranjit:

opus-a-day for a year? how many composers got past 365 opuses? (opi? opioids?)
  8:22pm P-90:

There's a cocktail I used to make called the "Prague Rocgue".
Trying to remember the recipe...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Matt from Springfield:

@oh How come? Are you bored with the chord?...
Avatar 8:26pm ranjit:

Is the chorine boring?
Avatar 8:30pm Bethany Ryker:

Beethoven. Genius. Never gets old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Matt from Springfield:

"Ludwig Van" for all Ages!

And Murray Perahia, nice!
  8:33pm P-90:

@Bethany: Leonard Bernstein gave a whole series of lectures elaborating on that very point.
Avatar 8:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& Ludwig so interesting as a historically transitional figure - no?...just as the dedication of the Eroica transitioned : p ...

Hello! How are all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Jake!

Chinese strings with saxophones, interesting idea!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Another all too brief installment of A440. At least it delivers sonatas to us before Moonlight hits.

Thanks Bethany! Have a good night everybody!
  8:59pm P-90:

Thanks, DJ Bethany, "see' you next week!
