Will you play one of the songs from Musorgsky's "Nursery"? Christoff sings the whole cycle falsetto, as a soprano, in his set of the complete Musorgsky songs. Admittedly a terrible idea, though the child as a basso profondo is just as bad if not worse; he shouldn't have included the cycle at all. But Christoff was always a law unto himself.

Thanks, Lance and John F, for your timely posting. I have now heard Lance's stream for the first time in all my years here. (Yes, I am deeply embarrassed by this :oops: .) Alas, I will never know what I have been missing. However, Lance's link did not work for me. I got "server not found." This worked instead:

I know that seems ridiculously simple, but at 7:02 on Saturday evening it is what worked for me. And thank you Lance, in spite of my negligence, for your wonderful work on this over the years.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach
