BAS Message
January 2022

1. In the BBC Music magazine, there is a review of Beethoven’s 9 symphonies. The reviewer says “there are two that I have heard so often that I can not longer respond to them”. He doesn’t say which but I guess 5 and 9. Nv20

2. I saw a favorable review in BBC Music of the comic operetta Passionnement by Andre Messager and decided to buy it.

Amazon sells the CD for $33.37 which is a little steep for light music. Or you can buy the MP3 file for $11.47 but no booklet. I found Prestomusic sells it for $9.25 with downloadable booklet. They state the bit rate, 320 kbps, and warn that there may be glitches in between tracks since MP3 files cannot be perfectly joined. Since the songs are all followed by silence that is not a problem. I burned a data cd and listened to it on my Blu-player. I was going to print out the booklet but it is 233 pages! I printed selected pages. Se21
