Lectures 45 & 46: Now we are getting into some stuff that is "ho hum" to me. Maybe I just need to put some more "effort" into understanding and appreciating it. But in my opinion, if I can't appreciate it on *some* level without in-depth study, I don't really expect the study to help much.

Lecture 40: Wagnerian opera. Why is it that so many of these great composers were so full of themselves? Favorite quote of the lecture, "[He was] a couple of twists short of a slinky."

Lecture 36: I love the part in the Symphony Fantastique (sp?) by Berlioz where the theme jumps around from one section of instruments to another. I want to hear that live sometime.
