Music: who wants to live without it?

Father had a great deal of 78s and an electrical player which called for constant needle adjustments. As a matter of fact I used to see him change them consistently every 8 plays – not something he would certainly allow anybody else do!! As kids, we made use of to give vocal singing recitals – especially at Christmas times !! I am happy for the direct exposure our moms and dads gave us to music – even if father was a bit single minded when, in the late 50’s my bro Kenneth, acquired home a recording of a brand-new rock-n-roll vocalist called Pal Holly I think daddy assumed it was not proper songs which the document couldn't potentially be up to the same criterion as his Beethoven or Mozart recordings !! He used to have continuous discussions with Kenneth about playing them on his’ radiogram. For myself; it was 1962 as well as I was far as well curious about my Uncle Frank’s new MGB roadster to focus – try as my mum did to encourage me !! My eldest sibling, Robert, turned out to be a highly achieved musician – playing the French horn properly for many years. My much-loved recording of this impressive piece: (only one of several!) Deutshe Grammophon 136550 SLPEM (stereo – 1968) Karl Leister, Clarinet, Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra performed by Rafael Kubelik. I never ever cannot be relocated by it.
