    Much later I was similarly enthralled at a live performance of The Miraculous Mandarin by Bela Bartok, he should be the forth B IMHO.
    "... Scheherazade, Rimsky-Korsakov..."

    This is a fine example of the "genius of the masters" I was speaking of earlier.

    "Bela Bartok, he should be the fourth B IMHO."

    There are many who agree with you. I am one of them.

    Wow, we AGREE on something Have you heard the Miraculous Mandarin? What struck me was the incredible difference of a recording of it V hearing it live, it was like an alive thing when I heard it at Wolftrap. We could not get in to the actual seats but there was a grassy knoll just outside and we had blankets and laying on them listening, it was breathtaking.

    I am not familiar with that piece.

    I heard an amazing sampling on NPR today of a new album by a Danish group. The story was about the similarity of classical music with folk music. I'll dig around and find the name of the group and album for you, or maybe a link to NPR's story.

    The group is the Danish String Quartet, they play mainly classical music, but they explore the similarity of classical and folk music in their latest album, Last Leaf.

    If you go to the link, at the top is a play button and you can listen to the story as it was presented on NPR, or you can scroll down, and in the right margin is a link to NPR's column Tiny Desk, where you can probably see a video of DSQ playing a song from the album.
