BRAHMS The Symphonies
Nothing is worse than having your life determined by people who show up unprepared, and that's exactly what happened to Rachmaninov. At the first performance of his first symphony, the conductor showed up drunk and the orchestra hadn't practiced. In the words of Homer Simpson, "D'oh!"
