mostly medical commentary with an occassional foray into anime, dogs, classical music, film noir and savant-like observations on the fraility of human existence (avoiding lapses into cynicism and darkness)

THE KREUTZER SONATA/BEETHOVEN#2
if any of you saw the film IMMORTAL BELOVED, there is a scene where beethoven is rushing by carriage to vienna to see his "beloved". the background music is the KREUTZER SONATA for violin and piano (full of sturm und drang). interesting i first READ the kreutzer sonata by TOLSTOY..a short novella abot the power of music. after ward i sought out the recording..i would highly recommend both...but which first????
