I want to thank A.C. Douglas, host of the always-readable blog Sounds and Fury for adding me to his blogroll this week. Mr. Douglas has a particular interest and expertise in the music of Wagner, and his post today does have a Wagner angle, but it’s most interesting for the way in which he captures so perfectly the horrific magic of a social occasion gone horribly wrong. It sort of reads as a real-life, classical-music Curb Your Enthusiasm episode.
In any case, a big thank you to him.
I’m sorry content has been a bit thin this week- I’ve been traveling and have not had much chance to work at the computer. Check in tomorrow for something substantial, I promise.
