Forsooth Opera Lovers!

Today we can celebrate the birthdays of:

Mark Reizen 1895-1992)
Leos Janacek (1854-1928)
Carlos Kleiber (1930-2004)
Brigette Fassbender (1939)

Let us remember Paolo Silveri (1913-2001) and Lorraine Hunt Lieberson
(1954-2006) who joined Heaven's Choir on this date.

The quote for today is:  "The melodic curves of speech are an expression
of the complete organism and of all phases of its spiritual activities.
They demonstrate whether a man is stupid or intelligent, sleepy or
awake, tired or alert. They tell us whether he is a child or an old man,
whether it is morning or evening, light or darkness, heat or frost, and
disclose whether a person is alone or in company. The art of dramatic
writing is to compose a melodic curve that will, as if by magic, reveal
immediately a human being in one definite phase of his existence." 
Leoš Janáček.

As always, a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our birthday artist for today and
all forum members who share their birthday with him.
