Let me tell you right off, I say to Susie, who just happens to be the violinist in the most sought- after chamber trio in the world, I really don’t know lot about Classical music. I go to Tangle-wood once a year and I like how classical music sounds; it’s pretty and everything, but I really don’t know anything about it.

I read this in this article. (I hope the advertisement to the right is always there; someone is playing a huge watermelon like a cello. It made me laugh. Or at least kind of go, “Hah!” Or … okay, okay … I just sort of laughed on the inside. Or something.)

Oh … and what’s with the “the most sought-after” or “the world’s most reknown” or “world’s best” and stuff like that? I’ve read those kinds of things so often this past week, regarding groups I do and, more often, do not know. How can anyone make that claim, I wonder?


  1. well, I’m the worlds best ComposerBastard if that helps and there aren’t a trio of me – only one.

  2. Hey Patty! I nominate you for “Most sought-after oboist”!

  3. But, CB, are you also the “world’s worst” when it comes to that? 😉

    Bill, thanks! Perhaps you’re correct … as long as someone is seeking silliness and ramblng blog postings.

    Oh wait! I do claim to be the world’s worst reed maker. I should turn that around and call myself the world’s worst bad reed maker. Whew! That’s the ticket!
