A bit like these bathroom-beauties?



No home is complete without such practical yet ornamental scrubbers.

Capital both, capital both — we've caught it nicely!


Alas, so have many...



...sorry, fully booked-up for the foreseeable.

Oh I see! So it's another of Gilbert's little hidden messages (along the lines of "I saw a tart, I saw a tart" in Frederic's recit. "Stop, Ladies, Pray!")

One budget LP (of transatlantic origin methinks) of G & S highlights churned out in the 1960s contained, in it's back cover listing, Oh dry the glistening teat...



...proof-reading, eh - who needs it?

Ah! My favourite piece of Glazunov's!

And the symphonies are damn fine as well! My favourite recordings are Jose Sebrier with the RSNO and Russian National on Warner.

You will not be astonished to learn that I have that set too (as well as Neeme Järvi's and Gennady Rozhdestvensky's, but I agree that Serebrier is best overall).

I know you're not keen on ballet, but Raymonda (1897-98) has some great music in it as well. The Naxos set conducted by Anissimov is excellent.

While I'm not keen on ballet, there's a lot of ballet music that I like, including Raymonda (although I only have the suite, also conducted by Serebrier). It's all that prancing about that I can't abide!  Grin

Do you mean this one? Mmmm, lovely toy mouse filled with cat-nip. At least it distracts from the bargain crud they try to feed me, while they feast upon syllabubs and possets...



...I'm surprised you've not snaffled it for your avatar.

Another cracker! Mosolov, The Iron Foundry. An amazingly inventive piece; unique, indeed. I have the Concertgebouw version conducted by Riccardo Chailly
