Great stuff Bob, thanks for posting. "Bach on the wrong notes", that's an insult I could live with!

I'll ask you the same question I asked Gav, do you know how this forum managed to resurrect itself?

Your welcome Ingo--and I asked Gav the same question!

Id really like to know if new people own it and are running it etc.

Bottom line though is Im glad its back:)

Thanks Bob

Excellent stuff, Bob! 

Thanks Socrates!

a little surprised this didn't make the list :

"Vivaldi did not write 400 concertos; he wrote one concerto 400 times." Stravinsky

2 books come to mind:  "Composers on composers" by Fisk.. a wonderfully entertaining, funny and candid, and interesting back stories..

"Lexicon of Musical invective" by Slonimsky 

Also, much of the musical reviews by Shaw can be quite spicy..- when he was writing for a paper.. (iirc) in the 1890's 

Thanks--for the Fisk all I could find was this:"Composers+on+music"++Fisk&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwii2Jbd0LnWAhUp04MKHf7CAqAQ6AEIJjAA#v=onepage&q="Composers on music" Fisk&f=false

Thanks Bob

The Lexicon is very well known:

Please look at the Contents and pick a composer...

Thanks Bob
