Very appreciated, Iskender, again. Now Karl always simply exhausts
me:-). I don't have time in two lifetimes to sample all the composers
he comes up with. Thanks to Dave for the Prokoffiev review link Much
thanks to John (John J Kregarman) for a review link.

Happily not a problem for me as I have an all region Pal-NTSC player.
Thanks to everyone. Obviously Haydn wrote a lot of operas, less than
the number of his symphonies. I have not heard one and I guess that
J.C. Bach wrote operas and symphonies as well. He is not my 2nd or
third favorite Bach however. Best wishes,
