Thanks, shamus, but I certainly do not think that "death really is imminent" And never let a lack of "technical knowledge" deter you or anybody else posting about "what they like" I may have a pretty extensive "knowledge" of the orchestral repertoire of the 20th century but it is a knowledge based on being aware of the existence and the soundworld to which works belong. I cannot read a score, I cannot play an instrument, I have no great ability to analyse the differences in interpretation between one conductor's version of a work and that of another-although I think that I can tell a good performance from one that is mediocre.

There are serious limitations therefore on any "expertise" I may appear to possess. It is only enthusiasm for the music I love and I hope others also love or would if they heard it and a passion to hear more of the music of composers who I think are unjustly neglected which provide my principal motivations for contributing.
