Hurrah for Christoforo !!! Without him we'd all just be twiddling our thumbs laugh

I pray, that tomorrow I may strive to be a little better than I am today - and, on behalf of everybody else, I give thanks for headphones.

Playing Rachmaninov on the harpsichord might just sound like too many (pairs of) skeletons copulating on a tin roof in a thunderstorm.

In which case, twiddling the thumbs seem like a better alternative......... wink

I've just been saved from a really bad visual by the firm belief (read: "hope") that Rachmaninov would simply have written for the extant instruments! smile
