No attempt on my part to besmirch the reputation of Herr Bruckner......the fact that we are still listening and talking about him 150 years later speaks for itself. I am a history buff and like to get the sense of an individual, that's all. I did enjoy the episode where he tipped the conductor like he was a waiter. The apparent disconnect between his life and work makes him more interesting to me.
No worries from my perspective -- I'm not a huge Bruckner fan. I view him as the transitional step into madness ( Mahler), but not the cause.
Madness indeed.........fortunately, Bruckner hangs out in the Solid State forum and won't see this exchange......

Before I disconnected my cable tv service permanently, 7 years ago, I recorded about 9 hours of "Classical Light" from Comcast's On Demand-Music Choice playlist. The cassette tape (#5) I played today had; J. Labor, J.C. Bach, Scarlatti, Dvorak, Bach, Schumann, Telemann, Pachelbel, Taileferre, Heinlichen, Mozart and Chopin.
Welcome to the thread! I have a summer house in the Bar Harbor area ( a flatlander from away! ).
Brunswick stands out in my mind because 20 years ago or so you had an excellent German restaurant ( whose name escapes me) that my wife and I would find a reason to dine in whenever we were anywhere close to you.
