Watching the 30th anniversary of Live From Lincoln Center...pretty fun. Weepy (ballbuster arias, all those curtain calls). Delicious (all that Marilyn Horne). Also nice because it confirmed that I actually *did* see that Masur performance of Brahms' Deutsches Reqiuem the weekend after 9/11--I swear it felt like I dreamt it. But there it was on the tape, down to the shocking way that nobody clapped afterward, as asked. That was a remarkable experience, that I never read or heard anything about, but was incredibly important to me at that time.
