Dinner with Friends Last Monday

Sean Gabb

And I was able to stand in solitary contemplation before this memorial to the greatest man who ever lived.

  1. Why was he the greatest? Great but not the greatest. He wasn’t even English…

  2. Mozart is a composer I have slowly gravitated towards over the years, but I could not be quite as positive about him as Sean is.

    Mozart expertly bridged the gap between early and middle-period or modern classical music. He had the advantage of emerging better kinds of instruments, slowly superceding the late-medieval and early classical types, and better engineering to make them.

  3. Rachmaninoff, Sibelius and Enya get my vote.
