I have decided that when it comes to Brahms, I don't like it performed "properly". Today I listened to Ansermet's 4th. He is about the last person most would go to for Brahms, but I thought it was fantastic. The quiet parts had the lyrical swing of Mendelssohn and the dramatic parts had the color and swagger of Tchaikovsky. I think I prefer Brahms to not be played like Brahms. It sounds too bloodless and monumental and bland that way. I prefer it when it's goosed up and played more like fun folk music than hardcore stuff like Beethoven.

Let's not let this nice thread die. We are shorter now with the latest ban of a regular member.

Enjoying some Baroque....

I sent a message asking them to reconsider--and I don't even agree with him much of the time. But he makes a real contribution, unlike most on HF. So I'll say it again: bring back the cartoon man!

I echo this.

Despite different opinions on a number of subjects, he is well above the average user contribution here.

Probably banned because he is arguing against audiophoolery in the other threads as he actually understands electronics. Thanks for clarifying, I couldn't see the reason on my phone!
