My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    Interests other than spiritually connected things are: hi-fi and music.
  • My favorite books
    Apart from the Bible, which goes without saying, almost everything by Charles Dickens and Anthony Trollope (I love 19th century English novels).
  • My favorite music
    I love classical music by Philip Glass, Aaron Copland, Gustav Mahler, Beethoven's symphonies. I also love opera, whether it be Donizetti's lovely and hilarious "The Elixir Of Love", or John Adams' "Nixon In China" and "Doctor Atomic". My wife and I go to English National Opera productions when we are able.

  1. Captain Beefheart: Bluejeans and Moonbeams. Victor Hayden, who painted the cover, died recently. He was Beefheart's cousin and played on Trout Mask Replica under the name The Mascara Snake. He was not a musician!

    Our views on the use of guns, and the 'training' of children in 'gun handling' obviously differ. And there we must leave it.

    Hmm. You could be right, so shoot me! (But only with a pellet gun!)

  5. I started to read the "Bearing Witness" book in concert with the weekly Bible reading in Acts, just reading in the book the section dealing with the chapters of the Bible. It is helpful to me.
  6. I finally got round to listening to a recording of Luciano Berio's Sinfonia this evening. What a wonderful piece it is! A mix of voices (Swingle Singers) and music, with words hardly heard, but contributing to an overall soundscape. Truly terrific. A version is on youtube. Keep going through the first section, that's a bit challenging, but persevere.
  7. Their first cd was new music, some written especially for them, so this is quite a departure. I also like the Rascher Saxophone Quartet in Philip Glass' Saxophone Concerto, and the London Saxophone Quartet on a great album of Moondog's compositions plus others.
  8. Last night my wife and I went to a free concert at the Conway Hall in London, given by the Ferio Saxophone Quartet promoting their new cd "Revive". They played arrangements of baroque music by Bach, Handel, Corelli etc and it was really enjoyable. They played for about 50 minutes followed by a short q&a with the assistant editor of Classical Music magazine. We really enjoyed such things as "Sheep May Safely Graze" arranged for saxophones.
  9. Last evening my wife began a 'violin concerto' evening. We listened to the concertos by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Glass (1), Beethoven, Dvorak, Korngold, Buene, Glass (2), Knussen, Tchaikovsky, Berg and Gade. So many great concertos! Still some more to go, but we ran out of time!

    Very nice image, Guri. Living in London, one can become so used to seeing the bridge that it needs an image like this to renew appreciation for our surroundings.

    I went to a Kleptomaniacs Anonymous meeting, but all the seats were taken.

    I've become addicted to brake fluid. It's not a problem, though. I can stop anytime.

    Has anyone here tried blindfold archery? no? You don't know what you're missing.
