      >Whatever the truth or otherwise of the story, the important thing is
      that Charles Ives sincerely believed it, whoever it was told him, and
      that cheered him up considerably. Which is a good thing in itself,
      whatever "really" happened.

      (Score lost, ruined by ink spill, chewed by rats, ruined by leaky roof, used to wrap fish or train puppies) "Oh Mr Ives about your score, something happened. It was all finished and we were just about to call you when Maestro came in and happened to see it. He was very interested and asked for a copy. So of course we let him take it." And the legend is born....

      (hope not, naturally)

        but international ones (such as San Francisco S O last Saturday and Sunday).
        The floor of the hall is given over to "promenaders" who stand, often, as at
        the traditional "last night of the Proms" (tomorrow!), in very large numbers
        Whole thing has become a Brit tradition, with much flag-waving, etc. Tony

        Anne,
        Please forgive my ignorance, but what are The Proms? The first I had heard
        of it was on a recent Pipedreams broadcast called Pipes at The Proms. It
        featured the pipe organ at Royal Albert Hall.

        Thanks.

        Two Ives symphonies at the Proms this year in London. First, there
        was the Fourth conducted by dynamo David Robertson. Robertson is
        brilliant, the kind of guy who just crackles with energy. Although
        American, much of his career has been in Europe, and for many years
        he was conductor of Ensemble Intercontemporain, the specialist new
        music orchestra founded by Pierre Boulez, where each member of the
        orchestra is a vituoso in his/her own right. He's now whipping up
        the BBC orchestras. I don't think he has recorded much but he
        programmes Ives a lot and has done more than many to promote American
        composers in Europe - Ives and Carter his passions. He's very, very
        good.

        (search google : prom ives fourth robertson).

        This Saturday, it's the Third, with Michael Tilson Thomas. Streaming
        live on www.bbc/radio3 and for a week on demand, but there might be
        better when they brepeat it on one of the daytime broadcasts.

        Anyone else hear these ? Tony ?
