Default Re: Birthday Surprise

Great stuff, Duncan, and happy birthday! I'm always amazed at people who have the sensitivity and connectedness to be moved to tears by music, which I only ever did when I was little.

The only orchestra I've seen was when a friend was given tickets to see the Brandenburg Orchestra. The sounds and textures were lovely but sooo quiet - staying silent was murder. I remember struggling to take off my heels (which were killing me) without making a sound on the wooden floor of the recital hall and at the end of a particularly long piece half the audience broke out in a fit of coughing and throat clearing, stored up while the band was playing.

Alas, I'm not very civilised :)
