3.0 out of 5 stars Too small for comfort, 27 Sep 2013
I noted from other reviews that these shorts are on the small side so ordered Large instead of Medium which I use for normal clothes.

As I returned these straight away I can't really comment on how good or bad a correct fitting pair might be.

Next day tried steaming an egg which was acceptable, day after tried the same thing… Read more

Harnoncourt's Beethoven caused something of a sensation when it first appeared in 1991. Until then new Beethoven cycles were either in the German nineteenth century tradition or the hair-shirt approach of the 'authentic' brigade. To say that Harnoncourt was neither should not imply blandness, for Harnoncourt gives the most intense performances recorded since Toscanini.
Indeed these recordings often achieve what would be my ideal; a Toscanini performance with modern recording techniques. Harnoncourt uses a much smaller band and the superb Chamber Orchestra of Europe do whatever he asks of them. Sometimes one wishes that they had trouble responding to his more extreme tempi, but more of… Read more
