"Wow, is it me or is the hegemony thick in here?"

You can say that and still attack Berwald? Along with the rest of your secret anti-Swede cabal, Henry and Wyote? A provocateur beyond a doubt!

MZ,

"Wow, is it me or is the hegemony thick in here?"

Why do you ask? Was there another hegemony that you would've preferred?

Not all those who voted against Berlioz are crazy about Mahler (David Mayer, for example), and to vote down a work is not necessarily to dislike it - it is to like others more.

MF,

"...to vote down a work is not necessarily to dislike it - it is to like others more.'

An excellent observation, & one I hope those here with a predilection to such comments take note of.

Ken, I immediately came to the Swede's defense, no? even if his bio does read as plausibly as a the Nordic version of Lt. Kije ;-)
