Mr I: was this some form of parody? Von Fawkes as conductor, Torvill & Dean on french horn and Hague at first violin?

Perfect for a frosty morning, thanks Mr Smith.

OT, but have you seen this?

Fucking Scotland, eh?

Yes, the editing and all the shots are sometimes a bit tricksy, distracting. Often, I wish they would just park one static camera in the third or fourth row and allow Herr Bach et al to speak for themselves.

I wondered of whom it was that the conductor reminded me. Von Fawkes as a musician, now, there's a thought.

Delightful, yes but strangely a bit unresolved, unfinished, incomplete, vague, even.

Very gentle, Mr Ishmael. A noise for a morning's walk along the shore with a pooch.

It reminds me of something that I cannot place. It will come back to me.

If you speed it up you have the intro to one of the Brandenburg concertos (ish), but I can't remember which one.
