I will... on February 8th.

Actual composer, not guys who made music for your "spacemen go pew pew pew!" Stories.


Richard Strauss was a great composer before Stanley Kubrick came along and turned him into "that 2001 guy". Now he's just another hack.

When my parents lived in Pittsburgh, they subscribed to the Pittsburgh Symphony. I was able to go with them to an Evening with John Williams. Great concert, The Imperial March in person was fantastic. Also, got to go see the symphony perform Beethoven's 9th Symphony.

My wife, before she became a nurse was originally a music major. Her primary instrument was clarinet. I always think of her when I hear the opening of Rhapsody in Blue.
