If you like Beethoven, Bach and Colonel Bogey, why not listen to them all together?

I love the Russians and Grothe', Bernstein, George Crumb, Bartok, Sibelius, etc.

I have some nice records and CD's.

I was listening to a great piece for guitar. I wish I had gotten the name of it.

Sound quality MUCH improved, and played by the composer himself:

I always thought the well-known, "Cannon In D Major" was a little stiff but always liked it. Here's an unexpected performer doing it and doing it as well as any one well.

Geez, SORRY Cleon! I guess I should've walked STRAIGHT up the stairs and to my guitar although I now have no proper seat near my guitar (bed's downstairs and I'm not taking the guitar downstairs, besides I'm not putting ANY weight on my left foot) instead of transferring the notes and discovering it's something 20th century I couldn't identify. My closest guess is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBiPQKK1upk
