Thanks, Carl. I love Vivaldi, too! Yes, S.B. is on PBS radio. I can get it from Indianapolis from 5-9 AM and/or 10-2 from Lafayette. I often catch the last two hours on the former, then the first two hrs on the latter station. And I can't help but frequently tape something I really like. I'm hoping to hear again Johann Joachim Quantz's 2 Flute concerto (in G Minor) to tape it. I was blown away by it. Ever hear of him?

Welcome, Randy.  I'm a huge fan of Baroque music as well, especially Vivaldi.  Is "Sunday Baroque" a radio program?

I have read where listening to music, especially classical baroque, can ease stress and tension, thereby postponing death a little longer. I guess I'm in luck. I listen to classical all the time and love "Sunday Baroque", 4 hours of great music.

I'm not familiar with the Hungarian Rhapsody, but at 6:08 there's a bit that very much reminded me of "Closer, my dear come closer.  The nicest part of any melody, is when you're dancing close to me." at 0:36  from the song "put another nickel in the nickelodeon":

Now, THAT'S a cool spin on Hungarian Rhapsody #2!!  Bravo!!

Los Angeles Guitar Quartet doing Franz Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody. Incredible!
