Frau Goebbels and Herr Himmler did their utmost to achieve the impossible: Ruin a piece by JSB. They would have succeeded too, were it not for subtle sabotage by some members of the Dachau-Theresienstadt Symphony Orchestra. I felt a bit sorry for Anne Frank. She was so pissed off with having to participate in this "Proof that Bach would have been a Nazi were he alive today" show that she almost managed to saw her viola in half.

Wondering if listening to the sound only would improve the experience, I clicked to another tab. Yes, it did, but I could still hear an imitation of the sound of soldiers goose-stepping down the Ku'damm. Almost made it to the end of the first movement before I gave up and reached for the first CD with the harpsichord version to disinfect the speakers and settle my mind back down. Raymond Leppard and the English Chamber Orchestra came to the rescue. Woooohoooooohoooooohoooooo

People who quote themselves are either neurotic arseholes or inveterate trolls or both.

:hehe:

But the Adagio (at about 9mins) was pretty good I thought. Frankfurt Radio Orchestra is obviously a bit of a scratch band, but they start to pay more attention as they go on, throwing themselves into the Saint-Sans by the time they reach that iconic finale.
