Concerning Rachmaninoff's Symphony no. 2:
Mobutu Sese Seko Nkuku Ngbendu:
Rachmaninov!! Rachmaninov!! Rachmaninov!!
All the suffering and torment of this Sisyphean farce we term life is worth it, if even for a moment, one can behold perfection! Half seductive melancholy, half incandesent bliss.
Yes dear, it's very nice isn't it? My hubby plays this on the banjo, but it's not the same.
