This is just to say that Beethoven Quartets totally rock.
I've been listening to the Borodin play the Razumovskys, old favourites of mine. I fail to see how listening to this sublime music could not cause a day-long burst of euphoria. I can't say that about every quartet though. I can't listen to the A minor (Op. 132) at all right now.
I've been alternating the Beethoven with the Yeah Yeah Yeah's Show Your Bones, a near perfect album if you ask me.
Rocking the house on a gloriously sunny day.
