Lazare-Lévy plays Roussel, Suite op.14 (3rd mvt)

And now, for something quite a bit different, the fine and relatively seldom played Albert Roussel played by the extremely fine, little known, French Pianist Lazare Lévy.

Max Reger, from " Fünf Humoresken" op 20 No 5 (Max Reger, piano) played 1905

On Nova and Brian Greene

I hadn't watched Nova on PBS since before analog TV died and so  hadn't seen Brain Greene's stuff.   Visiting a relative and seeing the program about quantum entanglement was really disappointing.   Personality driven science shows are for cabloid TV, not PBS.   If anything he's more annoying than Neil deGrasse Tyson in that department.  

Not tempted to buy TV again,  I don't miss it at all.
