Thanks, it is Bliss. I read the portpuri in one of the programme notes years ago. Then somehow recently this pops up in my mind and i have been thinking for a few days whose concerto that is.

Here's a joke from a recent music question on the BBC's University Challenge quiz programme:-

For which instrument was Bach's Goldberg Variations originally written?

Answer given: Synthesizer.

Even the question master couldn't quite believe his ears!

I frequently get depressed at the appalling ignorance most students seem to have about
classical music, but this took that level of ignorance to new depths.

Unfortunately, the ignorance of some students is a consequence of their lack of interest and their poor preparation. With such poor elements they do not have the capacity to respond, even to reason, with a certain level of intelligence.
