Rubinology Book Burning

Try to find a copy of Arthur Abell's "Talks with Great Composers".

Burn it.

There is not one shred of truth in this concocted piece of agenda-driven drivel.

Topics such as "How Brahms Contacted God" and "Puccini Tells How He Appropriated Divinity" should give one a clue as to the contents of this immoral and fraudulent use of the names of great composers.

One question posed the great Johannes was "what percentage of contemporary composers do you think really contact Divinity?" - 'two' was Brahms' response (who, by the way keeps referring to Jesus as the 'God-intoxicated Nazarene' - I think I need some intoxication after reading this dribble!).

If you want to read more about the debunking of this crap read Jan Swafford's article about Brahms: Did the Young Brahms Play Piano in Waterfront Bars? [19th-Century Music, Vol. 24, No. 3 (Spring, 2001), pp. 268-275]

I could go on but I may need to vomit now...
