LOL! If I had age-related dementia, no one *would know.

I uploaded the file that was supposed to be named 9 as filename 8.
So I think I over-wrote 8.
But I uploaded 9 as 9 and I think 8 still plays correctly? Either way, the latest filename 8 should not be there.

It's a good thing you are not responsible for counting B.'s symphonies. (The Pastoral was number seven, right?)

Nah, the 7th was the Zardoz theme.

Hahaha! Were B.'s shoulders as hairy as those of Sean Connery? That's the question.

PL OK! Though It was a little alarming when you changed books to a biography of Mozart.

Yeah, this thing is all over the place. It is just research plopped down on paper in German.
Then picked up by an editor... A German editor with no regard for the length of sentences.
Then translated into English.


Thanks

Section 10

17:32 I think I would eliminate what sounds like nervous laughter from Mozart.
19:12 'Inmate' or 'intimate'?
The recording is cut short before its close.
