    Saw Gunter Wand conduct Bruckner 8 in 1995 in Edinburgh. I think he had agreed to conduct something else, but at the last minute, and as usual, decided he'd conduct Bruckner instead.

    Musically, this is my preference as the best B

    I would have loved to attend that concert. Mind you there have been some pretty good Bruckner Proms in the last couple of years - Rattle with his Berliners in the 7th, and Barenboim with the Vienna Phil in the 4th.

    I worked in the big HMV near Bond Street tube station for a while. The B's occupied about a sixth of the classical stock on their own. Only the S's came close. Keeping those bloody Bach cantatas organised was a nightmare... customers seem to take delight in shuffling them!

    One of the things I miss about London is the Proms.

    Quite agree on the Bs; Bach, Beethoven, Bartok. Not so sure about that Bruckner chap mind you.

    Not many are :sad:

    But MsM is, and she shares my enthusiasms for the other three Bs too :smile: :thumbsup:

    If you ask me, the best things in life begin with an 'A'
    Or a 'W'
    Or a 'S'
    Or maybe even a CJH.:thumbsup:

    but most probably a E(lephant)
