Hi Bill, this is absolutely the BEST SHOW ON RADIO today.My wife and I Look forward to it, we love it. To continue the lineage add Schubert after Beethoven. For me Schubert has at times captured in certain symphony's and quartet's the true essence of Beethoven in spirit in form and in feel, you know he copy's, for lack of a better word, those gut wrenching lightening and thunder chords and rhythm's and accents and abrupt stops or rests that you would hear in lets say Opus 59 by Beethoven. I don't know all of Beethoven's works and even less of Schubert's but when I hear a piece on the radio and it sounds like Beethoven but I instinctively have doubts I say" Schubert" and nine times out of ten I'm right. What do you think ? Thanks for a GREAT SHOW . Nick C.
