  1. I thought is was slightly funny when you tried impugning my observance of Rosh Hashana. But now it’s getting old. I was in shul today and yesterday night. Is it your claim that a Jew can’t observe Yom Kippur and write a blog post and still be a Jew?

    Don’t post this kind of snark again, Bill. It’s not even mildly amusing.

  2. Reading this late. Daniel Barenboim is one of the most wonderful people I can think of. Good to see that his work is appreciated.

    Pearlman, your comment is distracting from the topic. Doesn’t work, dear!

    Keep up the good work, Richard.

  3. just making a point. You might have left the anti Israel diatribes alone for at least one day. Yom Kippur. Yet you can’t even do that. Why?

  4. Interesting that a post about Barenboim winning an award for championing peace bet. Israelis & Palestinians becomes an “anti Israel diatribe.”

    I have a rule here that you just broke. Call me “anti-Israel” and you’re gone. Do it again & you will be.

  5. Daniel Barenboim is a great conductor and musician. Unfortunately, I own only a few of his recordings. I’ve got the Beethoven and Brahms cello sonatos with his then-wife Jacqueline Du Pre and Barenboim on piano, and an amazing CD of Barenboim conducting the Orchestre de Paris in the greatest Debussy tone poems–La Mer, Nocturnes and, of course, Preludes a l’apres-midi d’un faune. Great stuff. I need more of his piano recordings.
