• Me: I was quite proud of the MSO’s performance of Les Éolides last Sunday. That was a very difficult piece to put together.


  • Robert: It would have been much easier if the music hadn’t been such a mess. Why can’t the French publish anything legible?


  • Me: I don’t know. Is that really a thing? What about Hansel and Gretel? Was it that much better?


  • Robert: Judging by the publishing quality of music during the Romantic Era, it’s no wonder the French were overrun twice by the Germans before 1945.


Ya can’t make this stuff up, folks.
