September 7, 2005 at 12:56 AM · Where I can hear this tune to try identifying it?

According to that site it's "Tchaikovsky String Quartet #1, mvt I"

September 7, 2005 at 03:48 PM · I used to dictate bird songs.

Needless to say I was considered a nerd on the farm....


September 7, 2005 at 09:23 PM · See, I just knew you had other hobbies besides playing the violin.

September 7, 2005 at 11:33 PM · Borodin Quartet has a great recording of the Tchaik #1...great stuff

September 9, 2005 at 05:14 AM · Thank you, thank you! It really is a beautiful work....might have to study that one soon!
