Leif Ove Andsnes - Beethoven takes you by the hand
There are apparently some pianists who, despite the anniversary, are not devoting them exclusively to Beethoven this year. Anyway, with his Beethoven Journey project, Leif Ove Andsnes has already done his bit, making one of the most beautiful recordings of the piano concertos. For Andsnes, Mozart is currently uppermost on the agenda, even if there is also plenty of Beethoven being played at his festival too. Time for another conversation with the Norwegian master pianist.

Is it just me, or has the "Sorabji Free" Zone ended up being almost entirely about Sorabji?

I'm kinda tempted to change it to Free Sorabji Zone.

I might well be the wrong person to ask but one problem is the different interpretations that can be put on the topic, the presumably intended one being a thread free from Sorabji but the obvious alternative being one in which members are free to discuss Sorabji; I am unconvinced that your suggested change of wording would make any material difference to this. That said, I have noticed very little actual "discussion" of Sorabji here anyway...

Free the Corfe Castle One!

All joking aside, I'm not especially disposed to Sorabji's music but I do appreciate the amount of effort which must have gone into this.

Well, a massive amount of effort has indeed gone into these two recordiongs and all the other 40+ Sorabji recordings and many hundreds of public performances / broadcasts that have occurred over the past few decades, not least in terms of the sterling work done by a handful of brilliant score editors/typesetters without whose dedication most of the rest would simply not have happened at all (there remains a way to go with that but several more such editions are already in progress).

It has been and continues to be a pleasure and a privilege to encourage all of this and to make Sorabji's scores and literary writings available to all who want them in both paper and .pdf format. We're also delighted with the work of those who put together and maintain the website at www.sorabji-archive.co.uk .

As I pointed out earlier - and only an ***** could have missed it - there is more than one legitimate interpretation of the thread topic.

and yet here again, you go posting about it.
And you don't? Your posts draw as much if not more attention to the recordings as have mine! - in which case, even if you did not think that you were talking to yourself, you should have been...

Here you go - you deserve this:

No there's not. You've tried to stuff Sorabji into a thread that exclusively was titled for the purpose of it not being mentioned. Given that it was Thalbergmad who created it (and we know of his opinion of Sorabji)... you attempted to hi-jack the thread again with Sorabji.

There is and I have clarified it above; one is a thread free from mention of Sorabji and the other a thread in which posters are free to do so.

No - and here YOU are, mentioning Sorabji again! It was indeed Thal who initiated the thread and I consider it discourteous of you to change his title for it in your post.

I am not your "mate", what you posted is hardly a trophy, it has no name on it and I therefore have nothing with which to deal.

You know what Ahinton... I'm just going to quote a great man...

Sequentia Cyclica is bollocks.

And be done with you. Your psychosis is at a level that no psychologist, psychiatrist, witch doctor or neurologist can fix.

You don't see logic; you don't see truth. You see exactly what you want to see and try to warp everything that doesn't fit inside your tiny little mind into something that does confirm your ideology. Proof:

Please feel free to post any non-KSS matters in this thread.

It was very clear in the beginning that this thread was to post about anything OTHER than Sorabji. It was in the very first post - which you obviously ignored, being the troll you are.

It's even in the title - 'Sorabji free'... when we say someone is Gonorrhoea free, it means that there is no trace of it in their system; it is not an invitation that they want Gonorrhoea. When someone says 'Sorabji free', it means that the intent is for there to be no trace of Sorabji in this thread; NOT AN INVITATION to bring the subject matter into the thread.

I really don't know how you misunderstood that?!?


what you posted is hardly a trophy, it has no name on it



There you go... it has your name on it - you deserve it. It's the last you'll hear from me on this thread. You keep circling the drain with your impending insanity.

You're welcome to quote him,. of course; however, neither doing so nor the fact of his statement make it factually correct.

And be done with you.
A welcome relief, I'm sure.

Your psychosis is at a level that no psychologist, psychiatrist, witch doctor or neurologist can fix.
Whatever it might be or whatever you believe that it might be, your conclusion is one that is as unevidenced as is any personal opinion being made to parade as a fact and/or value judgement, since you have neither defined it nor consulted all such professionals about it.

You don't see logic; you don't see truth.
You don't know what I do or do not see; what I do see, for the record, is the difference between a personal viewpoint and a fact or value judgement that you appear not to see or want to see.

You see exactly what you want to see and try to warp everything that doesn't fit inside your tiny little mind into something that does confirm your ideology. Proof:

It was very clear in the beginning that this thread was to post about anything OTHER than Sorabji. It was in the very first post - which you obviously ignored, being the troll you are.

You don't know what I did or did not undertand; my reference to more than one possible interpretation of the thread title (NOT any of its contents, mind) ws meant to be taken seriously only to the point of recognition that it could indeed be interpreted in more than one way, whatever or however clear the original intention might have been.



There you go... it has your name on it
My eyesight is not perfect but the only instance of my name on it that I can see is one that you have personally added thereto since you first cited it, which speaks for itself.

you deserve it
What I do or do not reserve is not for either of us to determine, methinks.

It's the last you'll hear from me on this thread.
Well, one must be thankful for small mercies, as the cliché has it.

[What I wouldn't give for an 'ignore users post' function'. Anything to not see your name again.]
Whilst I have no idea what you wouldn't give for anything, there is one solution to that if you're really that concerned - and that is not to beling to a forum of which I am a mamber and on which I might therefore post; that is not intended as a suggestion - merely as a polite observation.

That's easy enough.  Here's a script somebody wrote to solve the problem for group of forums under StackExchange, and here's another one somebody committed to GitHub for some forum I never heard of.

I've never written a line of JavaScript in my life, and I hope I never have to (it's an ugly little language), but I think you can just substitute by hand all desired specifics for whatever's written in those examples, and then load the edited file using the appropriate extension for Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.  (GreaseMonkey or TamperMonkey).

For example, if the code says 'SockUser1', you can just insert 'SorabjiBeej' or 'j_t_watlicker' or whatever.

Probably should work with minimal effort.

From what I can see, FoxReplace is supposed to handle what are called "regular expressions," derived ultimately from the theory of automata in theoretical computer science.  I think they use the JavaScript style of regExes, but that shouldn't matter much.

Therefore there shouldn't be any need to play around with JS scripts and install them.

You need to find a regex that can span multiple lines, say beginning with a fictional user name, like "Scrotes2020" and maybe ending with a distinctive signature, such as "Sheep shagging since 1937."

This is about the best I can think of off the top of my head:

Quote
Scrotes2020((?:\s|.)*)1937

I haven't bothered to test it, but something like that should work.  Just enter that as your search string in FoxReplace, and then replace it with "Cornhole Bonanza" or whatever.

I am sure that this will all prove to be helpful, even if only because it has the potential to give the member concerned something else on which to spend at least some of his time.

Common sense at last.
Not only neither "common" nor "sense", it is clearly also a fake quote and, as such, is not to be found in chronological sequence in this thread.

Not only have I no idea what might constitute "an overly long sack", I have never witnessed and have no other experience of camel excrement; even if I had, I would in any case have no way of comparing it to a 7-CD box set of Sequentia Cyclica because of course there is none.

As to it allegedly being "sort of my job to push it", I do not have a job at all, let alone that one, having been self-employed all my professional life; I draw attention to this monumental historic recording solely because I choose to do so, just as I chose to set up The Sorabji Archive in the first place more than 30 years ago.

No one does themselves any favours by faking quotes, especially ones such as the above whose utter falsehood is so hilariously transparent! They inevitably reflect on the fakers...

If by an "advert" you mean a mere reference to that work and its recording, I can only reply that, if such reference bothers you, you have only to look to your own prior mention of it, which might not be its most effective plug but it's a plug nevertheless; who was it that said that bad publicity is better than none? I believe that it is widely attributed to the great Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), who wrote that "the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about" and that "there's no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary"!
