There is no greater piano concerto than the Brahms Concerto No. 2. Except perhaps the Brahms Concerto No. 1.
At one time the conscientiously cerebral Stephen Hough favoured the No. 1. Then he came to prefer No. 2. For my money, there's not a lot between them except twenty-two years, with less explosiveness and greater serenity in the later work. Both are stellar exemplars of the greatest genre in music, the Romantic genre. Both combine the grandeur of a symphony, the passion of an opera, the tenderness of a love ballad, the torment of high tension and the rapture of repose. Both touch every emotion ever quickened by a beating heart. Both attain aching heights of sublimity.

If there were any flaws in the performances on Saturday night (April 16, 2016) by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra—with conductor Edo de Waart, violinist Nicola Benedetti and cellist Leonard Elschenbroich—of Beethoven (Eroica Symphony) and Brahms (Double Concerto) then this reviewer couldn't hear them, and it would be churlish to mention them anyway, so sublime was the grandeur attained.

Rarely in this age of militant anti-heroism, of woeful appeasement of evil, of weasel-worded MBA-speak, does one have an opportunity to see an actual hero in action.

Mulling Mahleria and Moronnials
New Zealand Symphony Orchestra
The end-times presaged by the state of our culture seemed frighteningly imminent in Wellington on Saturday night. Along the waterfront an assortment of homegrown headbangers caterwauled mercilessly, in what was, apparently, an organised event; along the streets, the prone bodies of their fans—the flower of contemporary moronnials—blocked doorways and shouted irresistibly erudite profundities such as "What the fuck?!" and "Fuck off!" to the world at large and no one in particular.

I am greatly saddened by the death of Tibor Machan. Though our friendship became a casualty of the PARC Wars, I retain and cherish superlative memories of the time he spent under my roof, being in New Zealand to deliver a SOLO lecture and talk to student groups and anyone who wanted to listen to him. His conversation was incessant, diverse and endlessly illuminating.

Twelve Aphorisms for Our Age—Variations on a Theme of Edmund Burke
"The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."
This adage is usually attributed to Edmund Burke, though its origin is disputed. Whoever said it, it is especially apposite in our politically correct age when one is not permitted even to call anything "evil," much less take action against it. Muslims practise and propagate their barbarous superstition, academia and the media their pomo-Marxism, moronnials their aggressive airheadedness, etc., with an impunity lethal to civilisation, because too many of those who know better say nothing. With current events in mind, I have produced twelve variations of my own on Burke's theme.

Last night's Republican debate was unforgettable for one thing in particular: Donald Trump's proud proclamation of his anger. This, in the face of the Republican establishment's attempt to repair to the evil of kumbaya, Romney-esque Political Correctness via the creepy Nikki Haley after the Treasonist-in-Chief's State of the Union address.

Decades ago, brilliant British-born television broadcaster and academic Austin Mitchell fled New Zealand saying, "There's a bloody great clobbering machine there." He referred to stifling conformity, the quashing of dissent and failure to celebrate the kind of eccentricity he was used to seeing in London's Hyde Park. (Ironic, considering Dr. Mitchell's commitment to the ideology that produced the machine, socialism.)

When Western Civilisation comes to an end, as it assuredly soon must if it doesn't quickly mount a dramatic rearguard action on its own behalf, its epitaph will be words that have been cited often, but not often enough: "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Garrick Ohlsson Plays Brahms
In reviewing a concert at this moment in history, one is mindful of one's good fortune in being able to attend such an event without being shot, beheaded or blown up by Islamosavages. (How long can it be, one frets, before concert venues become like airport boarding gates?) One is mindful that the music of Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms et al represents the cultural apogee of the values of the Enlightenment, which the terrorists wish to take down and replace with their vicious, totalitarian superstition.

Some years ago I got into terrible trouble with orthodox Objectivists who were backing Leonard Peikoff's call to vote Democrat across the board because a) socialism was dead as a philosophical force, and thus, not the concern it might otherwise be; b) Republicans were so bad the primary political imperative at the time was to "topple" them; and c) the Republicans, left untoppled, would usher in a Christian theocracy.
