    Without a doubt, Eyes wide Shut was one of the worst movies ever
    made. Horrible. Bob Hickey

    I doubt that very much, but if you can present proof I'd be, er,
    fascinated... yeah, yeah, fascinated.

    Many images of here were drawn and/or painted.
    B.S.! We considered the life span of 9 track to be 5 years, and most
    tapes were rotated through on a yearly basis for re-write.

    That's important. <straight face>

    I can't see Bob H's post....

    I almost wrote pretty much the same reply. Never saw the end of the
    movie... Hey Bob! it happened! You and I agree on something!

    Cheers,
    Alan.

  8. And modern films are very long lived unlike the celluloid

    And what about the first piano concerto with Martha Argerich after that...

    Film provides better bang for the buck: not only is the absolute image
    quality higher, but the image quality per dollar spent is _much_ higher.

    I have yet to see anything on a computer monitor that looks as good as a
    nice slide on a nice light table.

    Yes, he probably was - we don't have a 'firm diagnosis' from his lifetime,
    but modern studies of his letters and so on tend to suggest it.

    Which piece of his do you have that you regard as depressing? The Manfred
    Symphony could be seen that way, I suppose, but it has a certain grandeur to
    it.

    In any case, I strongly recomend the first piano conc. The Argerich
    recording I particularly like is a DG recording with Dutoit and the RPO, and
    the disc twins it with the violin conc. with Milstein, Abbado and the VPO,
    which is also excellent. There's also a very nice Earl Wild recording with
    Fistoulari and the RPO that twins it with the Dohnanyi variations on a
    nursery tune.

    Lots of other good performances (the Kissin, BPO, Karajan one gets a lot of
    mostly deserved praise) but those two are favourites for me.

    I must add the spectacular, though old, recording by Horowitz and
    Toscanini. It is really something of a landmark for this work, isn't it?

    I also vote for Martha Argerich! (All outrageously off-topic, but
    wasn't she married to Charles Dutoit at one time?)

    Yes, an awesome performance - I didn't list it because I wasn't going to
    recommend an old mono recording as someone's introduction to the work.

    Ahh, another subject dear to my heart...
